Resident Evil Director Teases Code: Veronica Movie

Sony | Capcom

Every family has a black sheep, and while some would consider this to be the cinematic car crash of 2012's Resident Evil 6, it's in fact the cult classic Code: Veronica that's slipped into the background of Capcom's zombie shuffler. Fear not, the director of the new Resident Evil movie has teased that a Code: Veronica movie could be on the way.

Released in 2000, Resident Evil - Code: Veronica was the fourth main entry in the franchise and picked up the story of Claire and Chris Redfield when they're finally reunited following the destruction of Racoon City. Unfortunately, many skip over this and simply head from Nemesis to Resident Evil 4

Will There Be A Code: Veronica Movie?

Given that Johannes Roberts' Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City tells the events of the first two games - and remembering Nemesis' timeline runs alongside these events - it's not too hard to imagine a possible sequel moving to the events of Code: Veronica. Roberts has already established that Welcome to Racoon City could be a jumping-off point for more movies, but now, he's doubling down on those plans.

Discussing what comes next, the director told ComicBook.com, "I'm obsessed with the fourth game. I love Code: Veronica. I mean, it's a slightly different universe - ish. But Resident Evil 7 is terrifying. There's so much interesting stuff in the Resident Evil world. And we've got to have Chris Redfield punching a boulder at some point. So, there's a lot that I want to put in. You could use the glove."

So there we have it, Roberts name-dropped Code: Veronica, the underappreciated Resident Evil 5, and 2017's acclaimed reboot in the form of Resident Evil 7. He's previously said how he has a soft spot for Resident Evil 4, so who knows where he'll take the franchise next. Either way, it doesn't look like he's done with Umbrella just yet.

What's Next For The Resident Evil Franchise?

Welcome to Raccoon City isn't even out yet, so it's too early to call whether Sony will give a sequel the green light. The first critic responses are a mixed bag, with some loving the campy '90s style and others branding it a feature-length fan film. Then again, none of the Jovovich movies were particularly well-received, but still made a killing at the box office. 

Importantly, Roberts has a young cast of talent that are very of the moment - including The Umbrella Academy's Tom Hopper, Ant-Man and the Wasp's Hannah John-Kamen's, Skins' Kaya Scodelario, and The Flash's Robbie Amell. One of the biggest drawbacks of Paul W. S. Anderson's franchise was the fact it basically threw the game out the window. Only time will tell whether sticking to the source material works in the latest chapter's favour or not. 

Code: Veronica currently finds itself in a state of limbo in the video game world, with frequent rumours suggesting Capcom's remake slate will skip the cult classic and go straight to a Resident Evil 4 remake. Whether Welcome to Raccoon City is a beloved return to form or just another Hellboy reboot, here's hoping it's the start of a faithful Resident Evil reboot that will give Code: Veronica the hype it deserves.
