The plot synopsis for Netflix’s new CGI animation Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness has been released and it reveals the White House is now home to a bunch of brain dead morons. I’m really hoping there is a particularly orange zombie for that metaphor to work properly.
Here’s the synopsis.
In 2006, there were traces of improper access to secret Presidential files found in the White House’s network. American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy is among the group invited to the White House to investigate this incident, but when the lights suddenly go out, Leon and the SWAT team are forced to take down a horde of mysterious zombies.
Meanwhile, TerraSave staff member Claire Redfield encounters a mysterious image drawn by a youth in a country she visited, while providing support to refugees. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be of a victim of viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. The next morning, Claire visits the White House to request the construction of a welfare facility. There, she has a chance reunion with Leon and uses the opportunity to show him the boy’s drawing. Leon seems to realize some sort of connection between the zombie outbreak at the White House and the strange drawing, but he tells Claire that there is no relation and leaves.
In time, these two zombie outbreaks in distant countries lead to events that shake the nation to its very core.
It’s also been revealed that Stephanie Panisello and Nick Apostolides, the voices of Claire Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy in the Resident Evil 2 game, will be returning to the roles for the Netflix series.
There’s also a live action Resident Evil Netflix series in development which follows fourteen year old sisters Jade and Billie Wesker who move to New Raccoon City with their (so far unnamed) father.
The series will consist of eight episodes each lasting an hour with Supernatural’s Andrew Dabb writing and Bronwen Hughes(The Walking Dead) directing the first two episodes. The series is to be developed Constantin Films, the same team who made the movies which may indication some sort of continuation of the films.
There’s also a brand new Resident Evil film out this year, just in case you needed more zombies.
