Resident Evil: Netflix reveals cast for live-action streaming series

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

So, for those who don't know, not only is there an upcoming Resident Evil reboot film (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City) coming to theaters later this year, as well as a CGI Resident Evil series (Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness), but there's also another live-action Resident Evil project on the way, this one simply titled Resident Evil, also coming to Netflix!

And now we got our full cast (which you can view at the bottom of the article), with actor Lance Reddick (John Wick) cast as series mainstay Albert Wesker! 

Meanwhile, showrunner for the series Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) had this to say about the project:  

Building on one of the most popular, best selling survival horror video games of all time, “Resident Evil” will tell a brand new story across two timelines, both following the daughters of series antagonist Albert Wesker in the present and future. Nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation’s dark secrets.

In the first timeline, fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world.

Cut to the second timeline, well over a decade into the future: there are less than fifteen million people left on Earth. And more than six billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now thirty, struggles to survive in this New World, while the secrets from her past – about her sister, her father and herself – continue to haunt her.”

For every type of Resident Evil fan, including those joining us for the first time, the series will be complete with a lot of old friends, and some things (bloodthirsty, insane things) people have never seen before!

So what do you guys think? Fans of the Resident Evil video games? If so, looking forward to this project? Either way, sound off below!
