Variety reports 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts is set to write and direct the Resident Evil reboot for Constantin Films.
According to the trade, production on the project is expected to begin next year with a brand new cast. Constantin Film and Screen Gems announced a reboot of the film series in the spring of 2017, merely months after the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, the sixth and final installment of the franchise featuring Milla Jovovich as Alice which helped the series pass $1 billion at the global box office.
Aquaman and The Conjuring director James Wan is producing the project. Atomic Monster’s Michael Clear is also set to produce. A previous draft of the script for the Resident Evil reboot was penned by Greg Russo who also wrote a draft of the long in development Mortal Kombat reboot which Wan is producing as well. Wan recently gave Heroic Hollywood an update on the Mortal Kombat reboot to which he explained the project is still looking for the right director to take the reigns.

The Resident Evil reboot has not yet been scheduled for release. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the Resident Evil reboot as we learn it.
