Tom Hopper, the actor who will play Albert Wesker in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, felt like he was in the video game during filming.
According to star Tom Hopper, the filming Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City I felt like I was in the video game. Hopper will play Albert Wesker in the film, one of the characters from the original. resident Evil game and commander of the Special Tactics and Rescue Services (STARS). It is finally revealed that Wesker is a double agent working for the Umbrella Corporation behind the scenes. His role in the next film is unclear, but he is not the only original video game character returning for the reboot.
Kaya Scodelario and Robbie Amell will play Claire and Chris Redfield, respectively, with Hannah John-Kamen on board as Jill Valentine and Lily Gao as Ada Wong. Welcome to Raccoon City will return the roots of the game, adapting the first two entries of the franchise to the big screen for the first time. The one led by Milla Jovovich resident Evil The films, while successful, were criticized by fans for straying too far from the original game’s plot. Fortunately, that won’t be a problem for the next movie.
Welcome to Raccoon CityThe director, Johannes Roberts, has detailed how he incorporated the resident Evil the style of the games in the movie and apparently it worked. Hopper says Collider that filming the reboot felt like being inside the game world. Specifically, Hopper references the aesthetics of the game and the way Roberts has brought the big screen to life, creating an immersive experience on set. Hopper says this also brings new depth to the characters that he hopes will please longtime fans of the franchise.
I think from an aesthetic point of view, I think games really influence this well. It’s an aesthetic that, certainly when we were shooting it, I was like, ‘Man, it feels like the game. I really hope that fans of the game get something good, that it is the game and more. More depth for these characters.
Roberts and Hopper’s comments are promising updates for Welcome to Raccoon City. Jovovich’s films leaned heavily toward the game’s action-heavy elements, quickly deviating from the horror aspect of the first film in favor of zombie battles that many felt did not honor the spirit of the game. The first game, in particular, is a classic survival horror entry that takes place primarily in the Spencer Mansion, a place the movie will return to.
The title also hints at a broader scope for the film, with the cast finally heading to ground zero of the T-virus outbreak in Raccoon City. The original resident Evil The film spends little time at the Spencer Mansion. Time Resident Evil: Apocalypse takes place mainly in Raccoon City, it did not live up to the expectations of the fans. Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon The city will have to perform a complicated balancing act. All the hype generated by the cast and crew is likely to heighten anticipation and expectations. Hopefully, they can pull it off.
