The Resident Evil reboot movie will be released in September 2021

Get ready to head to Raccoon City.

The Resident Evil reboot movie will head to theatres in September, Sony Screen Gems has confirmed with Deadline.

The film will debut in theatres from 3 September.

Resident Evil is a gigantic origin story which will feature 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 is set in Raccoon City in 1998, mirroring the premise of the original PlayStation Resident Evil. Back in November last year, we were able to check out a couple of pictures from its sets, including a great look at the Raccoon City Police Department.

Sony will handle distribution here in Australia.
