The upcoming yet official Resident Evil reboot film will reportedly feature Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine. She played Ava/Ghost in Ant-Man and the Wasp. While the franchise is still developing a reboot film, the characters for the same are still not officially confirmed.
Plans for a reboot of the Resident Evil story
Resident Evil originally began as a survival horror video game with its roots from a fictional Raccoon City. Raccoon City is where Umbrella Corporation, a pharmaceutical conglomerate, develops biological weapons to alter dead creatures. The story begins with a group of individuals who set out to stop the dark operations of Umbrella Corporation.
The franchise is now planning to make a reboot film that almost aligns with the original plot. Though all this information still floats in the rumour stage, we can expect those to be official in no time.
The cast for the reboot film
If there is perpetual news about a reboot film, it is fair when you have a cast that the film comprises. The Illuminerdi reports the franchise, including a new character to the film. Hannah John-Kamen of Ant-Man and the Wasp fame will star as Jill Valentine ;the character that sets out exposing the shady operations of Umbrella Corporation along with Chris Redfield.
Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine have a seemingly deep interest in bringing down Umbrella Corporation. Illuminerdi also reports Brenton Thwaites will likely don the role of Chris Redfield. This news has also not passed the rumour stage since its unofficial.
Why does Hannah John-Kamen suit best for Valentine’s role?
Much to notice was her well-received performance as Ava in Ant-Man and the Wasp. The writers of the movie expect an African-American character heritage with traces of other cultures.
Moreover, Hannah suits this criterion exceptionally as she belongs to four mixed cultures and would know her way around for the role.
But there’s still more detailed information to come to light for making anything official.
