Netflix has revealed the cast of its RESIDENT EVIL live-action series, with Lance Reddick (John Wick, White House Down, Destiny), set to star as Albert Wesker.
Other members of the cast include Ella Balinska (Charlie’s Angels), Tamara Smart (Artemis Fowl), Siena Agudong (Upside-Down Magic), Adeline Rudolph (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and Paola Nuñez (Bad Boys for Life). Details concerning which characters the actors will play remain under wraps at this time. The cast was revealed as a part of Netflix Geeked’s first-ever Geeked Week, a virtual fan-facing event revealing first looks and celebrating all things genre entertainment at Netflix.
Here’s the official logline:
Set nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation’s dark secrets.
Alright, alright. Let’s all put our tongues back inside our mouths, shall we? It’s kind of wild how much Resident Evil has come back into the fold, isn’t it? We recently got a brand-new game in Resident Evil: Village, there’s another Resident Evil reboot film in the works from Constantin Film, and Netflix has a CG animated series titled Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City debuting later this year as well. As I said, wild.
Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) serves as showrunner/executive producer/writer. Mary Leah Sutton acts as an executive producer and writer. Other executive producers include Robert Kulzer and Oliver Berben of Constantin Films.
