Constantin Film has confirmed previously that Johannes Roberts were attached to the film as writer/director. He has reiterated more recently that his adaptation of the franchise will more closely follow the source material.
We’ve heard from our sources over the last several months though that filmmakers are considering various actors to fill the roles of Claire Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, William Birkin, and extending that list one name further today is Ada Wong, who, we’re told, will make an appearance in the reboot, with comedian and actress Ali Wong being eyed for the part. We’re told that Ada is definitely in the current draft of the script.
Love interest of Leon S. Kennedy and badass secret agent Ada Wong is reportedly going to appear in the upcoming Resident Evil movie reboot.
