When asked about the current progress of Constantin Films’ forthcoming Resident Evil reboot, 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts told Screen Rant that the project is still moving forward and is in active development. He also teased about the reboot’s new storyline, revealing that it will be much closer to its video game roots.

“We are in active development of that at the moment,” Roberts said. “I pitched them a take, and they really loved it. So, we are just gearing up on that as we speak, really. I’m in the office all the time there. So, yeah, it’s great. It’s gonna be super scary. It’s super, super scary. And it’s just getting back to the roots of the game. I think, at the moment, I’m not really allowed to say much more than that. But it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”

Last year, it was reported that Roberts had been tapped to helm and write the Resident Evil reboot. Though previously attached James Wan’s Atomic Monster has dropped out of the project.
