Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, the 2021 film from director/writer Johannes Roberts that attempted to translate the original Resident Evil games from Capcom to the big screen (but ended up missing the mark with both fans and critics), will not be the final Resident Evil film, according to a new report that claims another one from Screen Gems is currently in development. This movie is said to feature a higher budget than Roberts’ film, which is reported to be in the range of $25 million.

From a report:

  • “…the script for the latest movie is almost ready, and Screen Gems will commence with the casting work and filming soon.”
  • “…the filmmakers are reportedly aiming for a production scale akin to [Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)].”
  • “Our source tells us that Sony is holding frequent meetings about setting the right budget for the next movie.”
  • “Speculation abounds regarding whether the film will serve as a reboot or continue the narrative from Welcome to Raccoon City.”

What RE: Afterlife (2010) looked like:

A synopsis for the most recent film:

Welcome to Raccoon City, once the booming home of pharmaceutical giant Umbrella Corp. The company’s exodus left the city a wasteland, a dying town with great evil brewing below the surface. When that evil is unleashed, a group of survivors must work together to uncover the truth behind Umbrella and make it through the night.
