Resident Evil Fan Film Starring Original Chris Redfield Actor Looks Fantastic

Resident Evil Fan Film Starring Original Chris Redfield Actor Looks Fantastic

The Keeper's Diary is a Resident Evil fan film inspired by one of the game's collectibles.

Resident Evil has spawned plenty of film and TV adaptations over the years, the most recent of which has left fans feeling somewhat underwhelmed. Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City perfectly honoured the series’ first two games yet lacked the polish to truly relaunch the Resident Evil film franchise, and then there’s Netflix’s Resident Evil TV show which was a certified flop. It turns out though, there’s a new fan film on the way - and it looks incredible.

In case you missed it, check out the trailer for the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake below.

The Keeper’s Diary stars actor Charlie Kraslavsky, who portrayed the live-action version of Chris Redfield in 1996’s Resident Evil. The fan film is being directed by Andrew Saullo, with Kraslavsky playing an Umbrella researcher responsible for preparing the Arklay Labatory’s animals for experimentation. Take a look at the teaser trailer below.

The title, The Keeper’s Diary, refers to a file containing reference to an incident involving the researcher and the T-Virus infection. Do you remember the chilling phrase “Itchy, tasty”? Yeah. It’s that Umbrella researcher.

Kraslavsky wasn’t the only familiar face to audition. Director Saullo also auditioned Greg Smith (who portrayed Barry Burton in the original Resident Evil) and Eric Pirius (who brought Albert Wesker to life). A Kickstarter campaign should soon launch to help fund The Keeper’s Diary so if you’re hoping to see this project come to life, keep an eye out.
