‘Resident Evil reboot’ film’s official title revealed

The next Resident Evil reboot film in the iconic horror universe will be officially called Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

Director Johannes Roberts, in his recent interaction with IGN, shared the main title of the movie. So far, it was being called Resident Evil reboot.

Welcome to Raccoon City will arrive soon, later this year.

‘Resident Evil reboot’ early details

Johannes Roberts revealed that Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will be based on the first two original games.

The mansion and the police station from the first and second video game entries will be featured.

And yes, to remind you that Resident Evil reboot film is a fresh take, it won’t be connected to past Paul W. S. Anderson installments.

Roberts, who’s also known for 47 Meters Down, seems to be going for a creepy vibe in his direction.

Talking to IGN, he said that he took inspiration from John Carpenter’s Assault on Precinct 13 and The Fog.

Resident Evil reboot stars Maze Runner‘s Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Ant-Man, and the Wasp‘s Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine. Upload‘s Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield and Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy are also in the project.

New game in the franchise

Meanwhile, the overall progress of Capcom’s horror franchise has been significant so far. But it’s expected to grow even higher with ongoing new projects, especially when it comes to gaming.

Speaking of the highly-anticipated Resident Evil Village, it will make its debut in May this year. The eighth title in the video game series is awaited for multiple reasons.

RE8 is looking mindboggling when giving creeps to the players by teaser trailers and demos so far. Those who tried an early demo were hugely impressed by its atmosphere and vibes.

Also, a new installment in Re: Verse Resident Evil is set to make its debut soon. It will be a multiplayer spin-off.

Then there is the future Resident Evil CG anime series on Netflix. The streamer also has plans to come up with a live-action TV series, which is already in the works. It will star the Wesker kids.

And Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is also due out at some point later this year.

Coming back to Resident Evil reboot, or more specifically, Welcome to Raccoon City, will be released in September 2021.
