The streaming service Netflix will be forced to indefinitely postpone movieing a multi-part project based on the popular video game series "Resident Evil". According to Slash Film, citing the management of the Constantin Film studio, preparations were to begin in South Africa in April 2020, and the shooting itself was scheduled for June.
However, the coronavirus epidemic and the restrictions imposed by different countries made this schedule unrealizable. It is not known when the work on the project will be resumed. It was expected that the series will offer viewers new storylines and stories set in the universe of "Resident Evil".
Note that the talk about restarting the series has been going on for several years. Thus, in 2017, it was reported that the producer of the new version will be James Wang.
The first adaptation of the game "Resident Evil" was released in 2002. It turned out to be quite successful at the worldwide box office, so it was soon followed by as many as five sequels. The movie "Resident Evil 6: The Final Chapter" was released in January 2017 and earned more than $ 300 million at the worldwide box office with a production budget of $ 40 million. Milla Jovovich, the wife of director Paul V.S. Anderson, starred in all six movies.
