Donal Logue (Blade, Silent Night) has joined the cast of Constantin Film’s Resident Evil reboot movie, playing Chief Brian Irons.
Other new additions to the cast include Chad Rook (Siren) and Lily Gao (The Handmaid’s Tale). They join previously announced cast members Kaya Scodelario (Crawl), Hannah John-Kamen (The Stranger), Robbie Amell (The Babysitter), Tom Hopper (Terminator: Dark Fate), Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap), and Neal McDonough (1922).
Written and directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night), the film will reportedly have faithful ties to Capcom’s classic survival horror video game franchise, with the story taking place in Raccoon City on one faithful night in 1998. A theatrical release is expected in 2021.
