Ahad Raza Mir announced that he will be starring in Netflix’s live-action remake of Resident Evil.

While the details of his character are currently being kept under wraps, Ahad took to Instagram to share a poster of the series, captioning it with:

“Evil has evolved. Resident Evil spreads to Netflix. July 14.”

The reboot will build on the hit survival video game franchise, which also includes a series of Hollywood films starring Mila Jovovich.

The official synopsis of the Netflix series reads:

“Year 2036 – 14 years after a deadly virus sparked a global apocalypse, Jade Wesker fights to survive in a world overrun by bloodthirsty infected and insane creatures.”

It continues: “In this carnage, Jade is haunted by her New Raccoon City past, her father’s connection to the Umbrella Corporation, but most importantly, what happened to her sister, Billie.”

Ahad Raza Mir’s announcement was met with widespread delight, with Mahira Khan commenting on his Instagram post with a series of celebratory emojis.

A user wrote on Twitter: “Ahad Raza Mir will star in the Netflix Original Resident Evil.

“This follows the news of Humayun Saeed starring in The Crown and Mehwish Hayat and Fawad Khan who could be seen in Ms Marvel.

“What a moment for the Pakistani entertainment industry.”

A fan expressed joy over the news, writing: “This news made me so happy.”

Apart from Ahad, the Resident Evil cast also includes Lance Reddick, Ella Balinska, Tamara Smart, Siena Agudong, Adeline Rudolph, Paola Nuñez, Connor Gossatti, and Turlough Convery.

The series has been created by Andrew Dabbis, who co-wrote the show’s eight episodes with Mary Leah Sutton.

The story for Resident Evil will be divided into two timelines.

According to Netflix, in the first timeline:

“We see fourteen-year-old sisters Jade and Billie Weskers moving to New Raccoon City.

“A fabricated, corporate city, which is actually forced upon them while puberty is in full swing.

“The more time they spend there, the more they realize that the city is more than it seems, and that their father is hiding dark secrets.

“Secrets that could destroy the world.”

The second timeline begins after the apocalyptic outbreak of the virus:

“There are less than 15 million people on Earth and more than 6 billion monsters.

“Jade, now 30, struggles to survive in this New World as the secrets of her past, about her sister, her father and herself continue to haunt.”
