Netflix has revealed the plot details and voice cast involved with its upcoming CGI film, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness. Voice actors Nick Apostolides and Stephanie Panisello, who voiced Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield in 2019’s Resident Evil 2 remake, will reprise their respective roles in the new feature.

Netflix also released a synopsis for the CGI film, which takes place sometime after Resident Evil 4.

In 2006, the White House, a symbol of the United States, was hacked by someone. Traces of unauthorized access were found in top-secret files under the presidential jurisdiction. US agents Leon S. Kennedy and others convened for the investigation encounter unidentified zombies in the sudden power outage of the White House and control them with SWAT.

Meanwhile, Terrasave employee Claire Redfield encounters a strange painting by a boy with aphasia in a country he visited to help refugees. Claire pursues her own investigation triggered by the picture that seems to have drawn a virus-infected person.

The next morning, Claire visits the White House to petition for the construction of a welfare facility, finds Leon who happens to meet again, and shows the boy’s drawing. Leon realizes something about the connection between the White House zombie incident and the strange painting but leaves the scene saying it has nothing to do with Claire. The two zombie outbreaks that took place in distant countries eventually evolved into a nation-shaking situation.

With this project, a new game arriving in a couple of months, and a new live-action series (also from Netflix), this appears to be a huge year for the Resident Evil franchise.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
