Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-, Ultraman X) is directing the film at Marza Animation Planet, with a script by Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, School-Live!). Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) is composing the music. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) is credited as executive producer.
In a collaboration between the film and Italian motorcycle company Ducati, Resident Evil: Vendetta will feature a scene in which Leon fends off an enemy riding Ducati's newest model, the XDiavel.
