Chief Irons’ role in the Resident Evil reboot is still unclear. However, he will likely play a significant part in the film, especially since the reboot will take place in Raccoon City. That being said, while a lot remains unknown about the reboot, the few details that have been released so far are extremely promising. What’s more, Roberts has been slowly building out a strong cast. As a result, with stars like Scodelario, Kamen, and Logue all on board, it seems that the Resident Evil reboot is ready to take the world by storm.
Deadline reports that Logue has joined the Resident Evil cast. Logue portrayed Harvey Bullock on Fox’s Gotham for years. Now, Logue will once again play a law enforcement official, as he takes on the role of Brian Irons, Raccoon City’s Chief of Police.
Despite his role as a Raccoon City police officer, Chief Irons is far from an upstanding citizen. In fact, Irons is known for his corrupt nature and has taken multiple bribes, including ones from Umbrella U.S.A. After suffering a breakdown in the 1998 Raccoon City Destruction Incident, Irons starts murdering people in cold blood. To that end, it’s somewhat ironic that Logue will now portray Chief Irons
