Resident Evil reboot gets a title

In an interview with IGN, filmmaker Johannes Roberts (“47 Meters Down”) has revealed the name of the upcoming “Resident Evil” reboot to be “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” .

This latest big screen incarnation of the video game series will reportedly not be a “remake”, says Roberts, but simply tell a new story set in the already existing film universe.

“Obviously, there is the Resident Evil [film] franchise and this movie doesn’t have anything to do with that. It’s a whole separate origin story based in the roots of the and the world of horror… We’re not [making a remake]. We’re going in a completely different [direction]… It was a real pleasure to be given the reins of a new franchise, hopefully, that really is its own thing.

The thing I loved about the games is they were just scary as hell and that is very much what I wanted. That atmosphere, it’s rain, it’s constantly dark, it’s creepy. Raccoon City is kind of this rotten character in the movie and that sort of atmosphere in the games I wanted to put in [the film].”

The cast of the film includes “Maze Runner” alum Kaya Scodelario, “Legends of Tomorrow” actor Robbie Amell and Donal Logue of “Gotham”.
