Sony announced a delay for the Resident Evil movie reboot.
Originally set to arrive in theaters on September 3, Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City was delayed until November 24.  According to Variation, the film is likely to have moved due to the September date that the same day of Marvel ' s Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings will hit theaters.
Here is the film's summary:
In the former emerging home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corporation, Raccoon City is now a dying Midwestern town. Leaving the company leaves the city a desert … with great evil below. When that evil is unleashed, the citizens are forever… changed… and a small group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind the Umbrella and do it all night.
The film will star Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Si Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy ) will play the role of Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) will play Leon Kennedy, Lily Gao (The Expanse) will portray Ada Wong, Donal Logue (Sons of Anarchy) will play Chief Brian Irons, and Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) will play William Birkin.
It is handled by The Constantin Film by writer-director Johannes Roberts, with Robert Kulzer working with James Harris from Tea Shop Productions and Hartley Gorenstein.
Another Resident Evil offering coming this year is the CGI show based on the Resident Evil franchise. Stream it on Netflix. Called Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, it will follow the adventures of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield.
There's also a live-action series starring the young Wesker coming to Netflix at some point.
