From sharks to zombies, 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts is on board to take the seat and reboot Resident Evil.
Roberts has been hired by Constantin Film who put the Resident Evil reboot as a high priority back in 2017 reports Variety.
The franchise has cumulatively earned $1.2 billion worldwide to date and is notable for being the highest-grossing film series based on a video game.
Based on the classic video game, the franchise followed Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, as she fights not only the zombies terrorizing Raccoon City after an experiment gone wrong, but the evil Umbrella Corp., which is the cause of the disastrous state. The most recent “Resident Evil” film bowed in 2016 and grossed $312 million, including $160 million in China alone.
The reboot will get underway in 2019.
