CAPCOM announced on the official Japanese Biohazard/Resident Evil website on Thursday that a feature-length Biohazard CG anime film has been green-lit. The film is slated for a worldwide opening in 2017.
Takanori Tsujimoto (The Next Generation -Patlabor-, Ultraman X) will direct the film, with a script by Makoto Fukami (Psycho-Pass, School-Live!). Kenji Kawai (Patlabor, Ghost in the Shell) will compose the music. CG animation studio Marza Animation Planet will animate the film. Takashi Shimizu (Ju-on, live-action Kiki's Delivery Service) is credited as executive producer.
The film will have a completely original story, and will feature characters from multiple games in the series, including Chris Redfield, Rebecca Chambers, and Leon Kennedy. CAPCOM producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Resident Evil 4, Sengoku Basara) is supervising the project.
