Gotham star Alum Donal Logue joins the cast of the upcoming Resident Evil origin movie.
Set for release in 2021, the movie is a brand-new adaptation with faithful ties to Capcom’s classic games, with the story taking place on a fateful night in Raccoon City in 1998 and with the cast in the roles of the iconic game characters.
The movie will be directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down), which marks the first time after six movies that another director than Paul W.S. Anderson, takes on the mantle.
