While there’s no doubt that some will take this as a sign of the apocalypse (hint: it’s not), Sony Pictures and Constantin Films’ upcoming Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is headed back for reshoots. The news comes courtesy of actor Robbie Amell, who spilled the beans during a recent Twitch stream.
Amell, who is playing Chris Redfield in the new film, revealed during a Call of Duty: Warzone stream that he’s “back in Toronto for Resident Evil reshoots. So I’m back in Chris Redfield mode.” Principal photography on Welcome to Raccoon City was completed five months ago, but subsequently had its release date bumped from September to November back in March.
As for specifics on what the reshoots entailed, Amell didn’t elaborate. One hopes that Sony will have a teaser for the film relatively soon, though having it for E3 (which kicks off on June 12) might be pushing it.
Directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down), Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City stars Robbie Amell, Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, Avan Jogia, and Neal McDonough. The film will hit theatres November 24, 2021.
