Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon Metropolis, directed by British director Johannes Roberts, will adapt the first two Resident Evil games that had been launched again on the unique PlayStation in 1996 and 1998. These video games begin off the Raccoon Metropolis Incident story and happen over the course of two months, so the film is prone to change issues up a bit for the sake of time.
The movie will star Kaya Scodelario (Claire Redfield), Robbie Amell (Chris Redfield), Hannah John-Kamen (Jill Valentine), Avan Jogia (Leon S. Kennedy), Tom Hopper (Albert Wesker), Lily Gao (Ada Wong), Neal McDonough (William Birkin), Donal Logue (Chief Irons), Chad Rook (Richard Aiken) and Marina Mazepa (Lisa Trevor).
We’ll admit that Resident Evil Welcome to Raccoon Metropolis is a prolonged and considerably cumbersome title, but it surely differentiates the movie reboot from the prior Resident Evil movie franchise directed by Paul W. S. Anderson of Mortal Kombat (1995) fame.
In regard to these movies, Johannes Roberts said to IGN that the earlier film was “… a very separate story that’s primarily based on the roots of the sport… —I fell in love with Milla Jovovich. That first movie is lots of enjoyable… but it surely was an actual pleasure to get the reins of a brand new franchise. I had by no means seen the horror and environment of the video games. What I felt after I was taking part in these video games or watching from behind the shoulders of individuals taking part in video games. I by no means felt it on the display screen, and that is one thing I wished to inform you about.”
