Resident Evil: Raccoon City post-credits teases director’s dream sequel

Resident Evil: Welcoming to Raccoon city is a hard reboot for the film franchise based on Capcom’s survival horror games. It has no connections to Paul W.S. The film’s bloody and basic back-to basics story is not related. Anderson-directed, Milla Jovovich-starring Sextet Resident Evil films that were released in theaters from 2002 to 2016. Raccoon City is your home is instead an adaptation of the first two video games in the franchise from director Johannes Roberts, who tells Polygon he wanted to “make [Resident Evil] scary again.”

The new movie features familiar Resident Evil characters like Chris and Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, Jill Valentine, and Albert Wesker — and some lesser-known faces like Lisa Trevor — in familiar places (e.g. The spooky Spencer Mansion and the bizarrely ornate Raccoon Police Department. Roberts has no plans to stop with just one Resident Evil movie — he’s keen to move on to new chapters of the games’ stories, with the events of Resident Evil 4 Code: Veronica at the forefront of the director’s mind.

Resident Evil: Welcoming to Raccoon city sets up the future of the film franchise with a post-credits sequence, featuring Wesker’s first face-to-face meeting with his mysterious client, Ada Wong.

Actor Lily Gao plays Wong. He has a small role in the film. Raccoon City is your homeShe is still a prominent figure in the franchise despite her presence. Resident Evil 2The videogame. After the film concludes, and Wesker is presumed dead, we finally get a peek at Ada, the one who’s been pulling Wesker’s strings offscreen and feeding him intel for his mission to recover the Umbrella Corporation’s T-Virus for a rival company (known only in the games as The Organization).

It’s also where Wesker, played by actor Tom Hopper, finally puts on his signature sunglasses after bursting forth from a body bag. Hopper said to Polygon, that It was crucial for him to show us the human side.

“One of the most important things to me was to get rid of the [sunglasses]To start with. I think that’s what’s so great about the final scene in the movie, to get them,” Hopper said. “And then seeing how he might have been brought back to life … He dies. I think that that’s gonna affect him in many ways! What’s really interesting is, he’s someone who is out for self-gain. Yes, he has morality in this movie, but he’s out for self-gain, and I think if you give someone like that power, they can do some dangerous things. In the end of this movie, it looks like he’s going to be given a lot of power, physically.”

Wesker’s evolution from bought-and-sold STARS captain to series nemesis would certainly make him a good fit for a cinematic adaptation of Resident Evil Code Veronica. Raccoon City is your homeIt lays the groundwork to the event of Code: VeronicaThe film introduces the Ashford twins. It actually includes a little bit of footage taken from in-game. Code: VeronicaRoberts said so. Alexia and Alfred Ashford serve as the primary antagonists of that game, which stars Chris and Claire Redfield, with Wesker returning as a more clear-cut villain — only now he’s super-powered. That’s what it says. Code: Veronica is set mere months after the destruction of Raccoon City, it’s the logical next step for the film franchise. And Robbie Amell, who plays Chris in the film, promises he’ll be around for it.

“As long as this first one is successful … we’re primed for a sequel,” Amell said. “So fingers crossed, we have a nice opening weekend. This is something I’d love to do again. For me, this was like a realization of my dreams. It was a wonderful experience and I loved the people involved. […]Chris is not here Resident Evil 4We did, however. 1 2So maybe this is the best one? Code: Veronica Resident Evil 4I trust the second. I trust Johannes. I think he’s awesome. I think he’s the right guy to continue building this world.”

Roberts told Polygon he’d be interested in moving on to Code: Veronica next, because, in his words, “it’s bonkers.”

“I want it to be very much like we’re adapting the next book in the franchise,” Roberts said when asked about future plans for Resident Evil after Raccoon City is your home. “What I want to do is base it around the games rather than do my own thing.” But he also expressed great interest in adapting Resident Evil 4, the beloved, action-oriented-but-still-spooky sequel that righted the game franchise in 2005.

As for the film’s Leon S. Kennedy, actor Avan Jogia told Polygon that he’s on board for “whatever else they would be interested in pursuing” in terms of sequels.

“I’m a huge fan of the game series. I’ve clocked hundreds of hours on [Resident Evil 4] so I’ve, you know, played Leon a hell of a lot more before I ever played Leon [on film],” Jogian said. “Just from a personal standpoint, RE4It is one my favourite games. It would be a great movie for me to watch as a fan. Las Plagas is my favorite… El Gigante, not so much. I love the Spanish European town that they’re in … there’s just really cool characters and moments in that game.”
