Johannes Roberts (“Deep Fear”) will be responsible for leading the reboot.
He will also rewrite the screenplay alongside Greg Russo.
Recently, Russo praised the original film saga, pointing out that in order for a reboot to make sense, it is necessary to bring a differentiated approach.
Since Capcom released the title that opened the survival horror genre in 1996, Resident Evil has grown into one of the most successful game franchises of all time, with over 100 million games sold worldwide. With nearly 25 years of history, the series has gone far beyond video games and gained adaptations for film, in addition to having inspired attractions in theme parks. With six films produced by Constantin Film, Resident Evil has grossed over $ 1.2 billion worldwide, making it the highest-grossing video game-based film franchise on the market.
