Looks like the long awaited Resident Evil movie reboot that looks pretty faithful to the source material is one huge step closer to completion, as the official Resident Evil movie Twitter page has shared a photo showing that filming has wrapped up for the reboot — with a clapperboard shown next to a television set.
As the tweet states below, principal photography has wrapped for director Johannes Roberts.
That’s a wrap in Raccoon City. 🎬

Adapting elements from the games and looking to be much more faithful to the source material than the Paul W.S. Anderson films, the new Resident Evil movie will take place in 1998 — the same year and setting of the original Resident Evil and its two sequels. The film will feature stars such as Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield, Robbie Amell as Chris Redfield, Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy, and Hannah John-Kamen as Jill Valentine, with Tom Hopper set to portray longtime antagonist Albert Wesker. The story will highlight the events from the first and second Resident Evil games, and will focus on the Mansion Incident where the S.T.A.R.S members discover the T-Virus and Umbrella Corporation all the way to the Raccoon City Outbreak that causes the entire midwestern town to become a literal city of the dead.
