    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    Romero was given access to information. Most likely, by 1998 they may have had initial information for Zero. Zero came out on the GameCube, but was originally being made for N64. It's possible that development was worked on as early as 1998. Or they took the name from Romero. That also would be...

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    From what I uncovered, Wesker and Jill are a thing, and Chris has affections for Jill. Chris not being a S.T.A.R.S. member was George's idea, as it worked for the themes and social commentary he wanted to do. Chris being Native American was something he was told to write. Barry being African...

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    When a decision has been made by those higher than me. Pandemic has made some studios take longer making decisions, since a lot of stuff is done remotely. Now it can take months, instead of weeks. It's a big opportunity. Even if I fail, its still experience earned. And it can open doors to other...

    Well, the good news is... if this reboot fails, you'll get another in 5 years.

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    Great adaptation and great movie don't go hand-in-hand. My favorite game is the original Resident Evil, but to make a faithful adaptation is literally impossible. And, I'm not talking about adapting gameplay or puzzles or any other grasping of straw arguments. I'm speaking merely on a story...

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    I have to clarify here, because there seems to be some misunderstanding. At no point was I using my profession to silence, or suggest that no one is allowed to critique. I was using my background as a point of reference behind WHY I stated my position. Sure, they managed to create some...

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    Fact of the matter is, the video game fans don't make the profit for the studio. If we only made a movie for the fans, the budget would be for direct to video. It's the unfortunate truth. Just as Hardware works in the film industry, so do I. And, it's not as simple as a 1:1 translation from...

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City

    Yes, I'd be okay with that. Because the gas mask isn't always worn. It has worked for other films (just look at war movies, or if you want, check out George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, where 2 of the 4 main characters wear the same clothing). Jill's outfit isn't realistic. That is all. The...

    George A. Romero's other Resident Evil scripts still exist!

    1. There is no Kevin Williamson script. Just a rumor. We followed up with all writers, and even contacted Jamie Blanks. There was a pair of writers that had a meeting, but nothing was ever officially written. After Romero was fired, Constantin sought out Anderson immediately because they were...

    George A. Romero's other Resident Evil scripts still exist!

    No game dialogue... its just really, really bad dialogue. Forced, boring, cliche. It makes the Romero script feel like The Godfather. No mansion. Just a laboratory built into a mountain. No zombies either. T-Virus allows people and animals to regenerate wounds, mutate. Dogs are giant dogs...

    George A. Romero's other Resident Evil scripts still exist!

    At the Archive. Read McElroy draft... it sucks. 114 page script. They get to the Umbrella Labs at page 46? 50? (No mansion). Dialogue was atrocious.

    George A. Romero's other Resident Evil scripts still exist!

    Okay, so, seems I was wrong about McElroy only writing the one draft. We just uncovered more information, including the date of another draft. I'll wait until we confirm to talk more about it. But we did have a quote from Romero mentioning they did two scripts or so before he was hired. So, it...

    George A. Romero's other Resident Evil scripts still exist!

    Two weeks away! I did confirm that I can take photos, so I'll be sure to upload a few here of my time researching. I'll get some script covers.
