Capcom Confirms Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness Netflix CG Mini-Series
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
CAPCOM confirmed during its Tokyo Game Show Online 2020 live stream on Sunday that it is producing the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CG mini-series. Netflix Portugal briefly posted a trailer for the project. It is slated to debut on Netflix next year.
The mini-series will center on Resident Evil 2 game protagonists Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield. Resident Evil series producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi is producing the mini-series.
CAPCOM's Resident Evil (Biohazard) survival horror game franchise already inspired three CG feature films: 2008's Resident Evil: Degeneration, 2012's Resident Evil: Damnation, and most recently, 2017's Resident Evil: Vendetta.
Netflix previously announced that it is producing an eight-episode live-action Resident Evil series. Bronwen Hughes (The Walking Dead) is directing the series at Constantin Film, and Andrew Dabb (Supernatural) is writing the scripts. (Constantin Film produced all six installments in the Paul W.S. Anderson-directed Resident Evil film series.) The Hollywood Reporter describes the story of the live-action Netflix series:
The Netflix series will tell its new story across two timelines. In the first, 14-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker are moved to New Raccoon City. A manufactured, corporate town, forced on them right as adolescence is in full swing. But the more time they spend there, the more they come to realize that the town is more than it seems and their father may be concealing dark secrets. Secrets that could destroy the world. The second, more than a decade into the future sees less than 15 million people left on Earth. And more than 6 billion monsters — people and animals infected with the T-virus. Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this new world, while the secrets from her past — about her sister, her father and herself — continue to haunt her.
