Resident Evil, the iconic survival horror game series, is getting a fresh coat of paint in the form of a new movie: Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. The game series already has a whopping six accompanying films, most of which did not follow the canonical game timeline, but they were a fun addition to the story as a whole.
This new film looks like it will follow somewhat closely to the events of both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. And with a new trailer having been released on Oct. 7, fans of the game franchise may be curious to know who will be appearing in the movie.
Kaya Scodelario as Claire Redfield
The Brazilian-English actress may be recognizable from her notable roles as Effy Stonem in the E4 series Skins or as Teresa from the Maze Runner series of movies.
She will be playing Chris Redfield's sister, Claire, the smart, yet tough female lead who will undoubtedly be a major protagonist in the film.
Avan Jogia as Leon S. Kennedy
This Canadian actor, singer, writer, and director first came to prominence in the 2006 film A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Arujo Story as Danny Arujo. Younger fans may recognize Jogia from his work in the nickelodeon show, VICTORiOUS, as Beck Oliver.
He will play Leon Kennedy, the optimisitic, rookie cop from Resident Evil 2 and will surely appear alongside Claire in much of the film.
