A snapshot shared by Twitter user @RE_Wiki reveals primary plot outline of esteemed series from WaybackMachine. Netflix has uploaded these first details of Resident Evil show on their site shortly before removing it entirely.

Perhaps, they are not yet ready to make an official announcement and a previous report says that its pre-production will begin in April 2020. Considering that, a confirmation of some sort may come out much sooner than later.

Resident Evil series for Netflix will probably go exploring an origin for Umbrella's creation of deadly T-Virus. Although set 26 years after Raccoon City incident, Greenwood Asylum and town of Clearfield may hold some connection to thatcase.

Since Umbrella has gotten Washington, D.C. involved into their shady business, things are likely to get intense, maybe even political. Perhaps a modern-day occurrence will trigger events that will lead back to some deep dark secret.

After their previous affiliation on Resident Evil movie franchise, production company Constantin Films has teamed-up with Netflix for apparent TV adaptation and they have no plans to make any canonical connection between these two.

Resident Evil Netflix series will reportedly premiere on spring 2021 but there is still no confirmation of its cast members. At this point, a solid confirmation on plot summery and more details from official sources is much required.

Resident Evil Netflix TV Series to Begin Production in June

According to latest reports, Resident Evil Netflix series adaptation will be starting production this June.

Back in 2019, Deadline reported of a brand-new Resident Evil TV series adaptation being in development for online streaming mogul Netflix, in association with the German distribution and production company Constantin Films.

After years of rumor and speculations, a project is finally going forward this year by starting pre-production in April and then begins filming in June through October for a possible 2021 world premiere, according to reports.

Contrary to live-action films being shot in Canada and Mexico, production will be set in South Africa for most part. After a few months of post-production, a spring 2021 release is likely to happen if there is no need for re-shoots.

Constantin Films has previously backed RE movie franchise but they have no plans to canonically connect film adaptation to upcoming series other than basic plot concepts of nefarious Umbrella Corporation and their illegal operations.

James Wan Exits Resident Evil Movie Reboot

"Aquaman" director James Wan is no longer producing the upcoming Resident Evil Reboot movie for Constantin Films.

It was only a month ago, when we heard news of screenwriter Greg Russo has submitted his complete draft for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot to Constantin Films that is supposed to be produced by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring).

It would have been a great fun for the curious audience to see how this successful director influences the movie with his classic style of horror but according to a recent report, Wan is no longer producing the upcoming film of RE franchise.

Wan was actually somewhat frustrated that the possibility of his involvement to the project was announced prematurely. In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Wan cleared out that he is not doing it anymore as it has been dropped and then said the following.

It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.

Even though Wan is out from the anticipated project, he is still attached to do a remake of South Korean zombie apocalypse action thriller Train to Busan and wishes to do proper justice to it, because it is a very beloved property to him.

He is currently busy with his upcoming DC Extended Universe superhero movie Aquaman, which is inbound for December 21 and his company Atomic Monster will start working on Swamp Thing series for DC Universe right away.

Shortly after the end of Resident Evil movie franchise by director Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and actress Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) with the release of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, a horror-centric reboot was announced.

RE movies had a six movie run that has grossed over $1 billion worldwide collectively. Even though Greg Russo wrote a script that will take the series back to the roots of horror just as the studio is interested in but he would very much like them to take a Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style approach.

Resident Evil Movie Reboot to Be Based on Resident Evil 7

Screenwriter Greg Russo revealed that he took inspiration from Resident Evil 7 for the script of Resident Evil movie reboot.

Long before the Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien vs. Predator, Death Race) directed and Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element, Ultraviolet) starrer Resident Evil movie franchise ended with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, there was announcement for a series reboot.

Although Anderson is not returning to direct again, Constantin Films are handling the project with screenwriter Greg Russo readying drafts and to be directed by James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring), which could be a delight to horror fans in general.

Russo has recently opened up in an interview about his writing process and how he took inspirations to follow Capcom's lead to re-inventing the series. One of the main aspects of that motto is to go back to the roots of horror in the first place for him.

For me it was very clear cut that I wanted to go back and make it scary again like a horror film in terms of the classic James Wan style so that was the pitch, going back and looking what made the games scary in the first place so yea Resident Evil 7 was a bit of a touchstone for my draft.

For years, fans have been complaining about the RE movies from director Anderson for moving far from the horror and making over-the-top action flicks. What they cannot deny that whether or not they were crappy movies, they made a ton of money and thankfully came to an end.

Though Russo did enjoy the films, but he believes that RE franchise has always prioritized the elements of horror first and then focused on action. And that is why; he chose to take writing inspiration from the terrifying 2017 game.

He would personally love to see a Resident Evil film made in Texas Chainsaw Massacre-style and centered on Baker Family. Then he wants Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to jump in the middle as Chris Redfield and punch boulders for the ending scene.

Greg Russo has already handed over his draft to Constantin Films and looks like they are pretty content with what he came up with. James Wan is also producing the Resident Evil movie reboot and we expect him to come up with his classic style of horror.
