The rebooted Resident Evil movie is slated for release on September 3, 2021. As Slash Film notes, it’s unclear if the movie will be released in theaters or streaming. Kotaku previously reported that Constantin Film is working with writer-director Johannes Roberts on the reboot. 

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.

I hope by then I’ll be vaccinated and feel safer going to the theater. I’ve been watching this reboot and I hope I’m getting too excited but it does seem to stick with the source material.

My biggest concern though that I’ve mentioned many times is with the story. Since they’re combining RE1&2 into one movie that’s a lot to cover! Unless it’ll be more RE2 focused with the mansion stuff in RE1 being flashbacks?

(edit) I also didn’t mind the 6 RE movies we got. They’re just fun action movies. I do think RE1 and Apocalypse were the best ones since they played with the source material. After that the other movies became their own thing. The low point for me was Extinction but it got better with Afterlife.
