Another Resident Evil movie is scheduled to come out on September 9 of this year. Instead of continuing with Milla Jovovich as the lead, this movie will be a reboot with a new cast. Six films are scheduled to be part of the reboot.

According to Anime News Network, so far the announced cast consists of “Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.”

Johannes Roberts of 47 Meters Down is attached to write and direct. The movie will take place in 1998, in Raccoon City, and is supposed to be more faithful to the original video game than the previous Resident Evil movies.
