Filming has wrapped on Constantin Film’s upcoming film reboot of Resident Evil, as announced in a tweet from Sony Pictures.

Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, The Strangers: Prey at Night) wrote and directed the new film, which is an origin story adaptation set in Racoon City in 1998. In a previous statement shared by Deadline, Roberts noted that he wanted to “go back to the original first two games and recreate the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them whilst at the same time telling a grounded human story about a small dying American town that feels both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences.”

Roberts’ film is reportedly intended to kick off a new universe inspired by storylines and characters from Capcom’s classic Resident Evil games. The cast includes Kaya Scodelario (Crawl) as Claire Redfield, Hannah John-Kamen (Black Mirror) as Jill Valentine, Robbie Amell (The Babysitter) as Chris Redfield, Tom Hopper (Terminator: Dark Fate) as Albert Wesker, Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon S. Kennedy, Neal McDonough (1922) as William Birkin, and Donal Logue (Blade) as Chief Irons.

A theatrical release is slated for 2021.
