As Resident Evil fans, we’ve all been waiting patiently for more information on the upcoming Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City film about the long-standing video game series which is scheduled to be released later this year.
We’ve recently learned that reshoots are currently being done in Toronto to add some extra content to the movie while the original filming was wrapped back in December 2020.
The news of the reshoots comes from Robbie Amell, who is set to play Chris Redfield in the movie, during a live stream on his Twitch noting that he recently had to step back into the role of Chris Redfield. Amell stated that he was back in Toronto for Resident Evil reshoots and was “back in Chris Redfield mode”.

Amell didn’t offer any extra information beyond this but it is not surprising that Sony Pictures and Constantin films needed to do reshoots, this is common practice during the production of any film series whether it’s to fix something in a scene or to film a whole new scene altogether.
With that being said, it shouldn’t be a concern that reshoots were done and we can still expect a November 2021 release for the movie.
Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is scheduled to officially be released on November 24th, 2021.
