It stars Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Wesker , Avan Jogia (Zombieland Double Tap) as Leon Kennedy and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin.

The film’s delay comes as the news that the new Mortal Kombat feature film was also delayed.
