"This, a bloody tale of revenge.
Resident Evil: Vendetta, known in Japan as BIOHAZARD VENDETTA, is an upcoming feature-length CG film developed by a cooperation of Capcom and Marza Animation Planet. Overseen by Capcom supervisor Hiroyuki Kobayashi, the film is slated for a 2017 worldwide release. The film's intended style, in departure from the previous two films, is to welcome in more fans of anime such as PSYCHO-PASS and live-action horror films rather than cater entirely to established fans of the games.
The film features BSAA advisor Rebecca Chambers; BSAA SOU Captain Chris Redfield and US government agent Leon Scott Kennedy. Concept art shown suggests that an isolated mansion may be an aspect of the story. At one point Leon is advertised as riding an Italian Ducati motorcycle in an action sequence.
The film was announced on October 15, 2015 in a mission statement on Marza Animation Planet's official website. It was referred to as a "reboot", though in regards to the staff being different from the first two, and not in terms of plot. The official title was announced on March 25, 2016, being fomerly called "BIOHAZARD CG3".
The film will feature a promotional campaign, for Ducati Motor Handling, to feature their latest motorcycle, the XDiavel, which will be used by Leon in the climax of the film.
