Back in October, fans got their first look at the cast for the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot, confirming who will be bringing to life iconic characters like Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield, and more. Now, we’ve got our first look at Racoon City with new set images from the film.
Fans curious about the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot were quick to sus out any and all information they could find. The fruits of that labor resulted in quite a few on-set images showing off Racoon City’s police station:

Seen people talking about how this might be the RPD entrance, so I decided to do a little side-by-side.
It’s the RPD entrance. No doubt in my mind. pic.twitter.com/9wh9HbZNMD

The above images are mostly centered around the entrance into the city and the police department itself, but it is a cool little inside sneak peek at what the overall vibe will be, especially coming from the previous Resident Evil movies that were met with increasingly negative responses with each new release.
As for who will be a part of this new film, below are the confirmed names for the actors portraying some of our favorite characters:
- Kaya Scodelario (Maze Runner) as Claire Redfield
- Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man) as Jill Valentine
- Robbie Amell (Upload) as Chris Redfield
- Tom Hopper (The Umbrella Academy) as Wesker
- Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap) as Leon Kennedy
- Neal McDonough (Yellowstone) as William Birkin
“With this movie, I really wanted to go back to the original first two games and re-create the terrifying visceral experience I had when I first played them whilst at the same time telling a grounded human story about a small dying American town that feels both relatable and relevant to today’s audiences,” said the director previously.
We know that the upcoming movie will be centered within the timeframe of the first two games in the franchise. More information about the narrative has yet to be revealed, but hopefully we will be learning more soon now that it is in active development.
