The Resident Evil origin film officially has announced a release date of September 3, 2021.
It was originally scheduled to release later this year, but any final date was yet to be confirmed. The CAPCOM origin story aims to kick off a new series of franchise feature films and is set in the era of 1998, ahead of the Racoon City Incident’s notable events, which began a massive outbreak that changed everything.
Sony Pictures and Constantin Films are at the wheel of the origin story. Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell, who both were portrayed as siblings in the first two video games, are expected to lead roles in Resident Evil. The film is allegedly only the first of six in the reboot franchise. Though Resident Evil films have been released back since 2002, the new release is expected to take a non-similar approach to the ones filmed in the past.
Netflix has also recently announced that it is working on a live-action television series of the video game, wrapping both the origin story and the world, 10 years after the outbreak happens. Constantin Film both produces the film and Netflix series.
Due to the COVID-19, several films and studios have delayed release dates to the Fall, hoping the vaccination will occur so that box offices will return to normal. However, it remains to be seen whether or not a September release date will be delayed again. We hope it does not!
