In addition to Resident Evil 6, Leon and Ada will also be in the upcoming Resident Evil: Damnation movie. Written by Ghost in the Shell: Solid State Society and Resident Evil: Degeneration screenwriter, Shotaro Suga, the movie takes place in Europe, and sees Leon investigating the use of B.O.W.s in war.
Speaking with Tokyopop, Resident Evil: Damnation director, Makoto Kamiya, says that Damnation takes place between Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6.
“The previous film, Degeneration, took place after Resident Evil 4, but things have changed regarding the proliferation of the virus and the B.O.W.s,” Kamiya shares. “We wanted to show what’s going on in the world regarding BOWs and the characters you’ll play in Resident Evil 6.”
“That’s what we’re showing in Resident Evil: Damnation; it actually falls right before Resident Evil 6. It’s between RE5 and RE6.”
Resident Evil: Damnation will play in Japanese cinemas on October 27th. Sony Pictures will distribute the film in North America. You can watch a trailer for it here.
