Is it possible to read that script somewhere?Well, Romero's Resident Evil draft looked like it was gonna do the series justice. It even featured Jill, Chris and the Spencer Mansion incident, but then they scrapped it for that hack, Paul Anderson's script and we got six abominations out of it. The first film was, I guess okay for what it was, but the rest suck, all of them, especially The Final Chapter, good God, was that terrible.
I understand why many fans feel that way, believe me, but like KManX89, i'm one of the fans who liked it and think that it was pretty good, but the dialogue in it was bad in many parts, and apparently earlier versions of the first script by Alan McElroy suffered from same problem. But honestly i'd still take either of those two scripts over not just first film but anything else Anderson did with the movies, and Capcom did with the franchise with some of the games. That's MY opinion.Romero's script was horrible. I highly doubt his final product would have been anything special. Just another bad movie based on a video game.
There is a scanned copy of first draft, and you can read transcript of it here;Is it possible to read that script somewhere?
I like Extinction for its cinematography and visual style, that's the one I return to. But mainly because I enjoy the director's earlier works.Well, Romero's Resident Evil draft looked like it was gonna do the series justice.

"We are in active development of that at the moment. I pitched them a take, and they really loved it. So, we are just gearing up on that as we speak, really. I’m in the office all the time there. So, yeah, it’s great. It’s gonna be super scary. It’s super, super scary. And it’s just getting back to the roots of the game. I think, at the moment, I’m not allowed to say much more than that. But it’s gonna be a lot of fun."
Well, at least they're not turning down the f*cking zombie movie God's script for that hack, Paul WS Anderson this time, but it's still not a good sign.Johannes Roberts recently mentioned the reboot in an interview, looks like they dropped Greg Russo's script and could be going with his story ideas instead;
Sounds like history could be repeating itself, meaning they still could go through different writers and directors before they get a script and direction they're happy with, just like what happened to the first film, or they could just cancel the whole project.
Looks more like Jill than whatever that character design in RE3 Remake is XD. That said, I don't think it's a bad casting. Some of the most memorable castings in history were met with fan backlash at first. People seem to forget that Heath Ledger's Joker was actually a HATED casting before the film came out. Lots of people thought that was a mistake. Now he's the most iconic live action Joker out there (Much to my chagrin). Hell, even Bruce Willis in Die Hard, arguably the most notable action hero/movie combo of all time, was looked upon with ire by people. At the time, Bruce Willis was known for the TV show Moonlighting, which was a comedy. He wasn't a big jacked dude like Schwarzenegger or Stalone. No one thought he could do it. Now the name Bruce Willis is synonymous with Action Movies. So all in all, I rarely ever worry about the casting until the final product, because I've been pleasantly surprised quite frequently.https://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/zombieland-star-reportedly-eyed-play-jill-valentine-resident-evil-reboot/
So apparently Abigail Breslin from the Zombieland films are being considered for the role of Jill Valentine. Apart from her eyes she neither looks or feels like Jill at all, so if the casting directors are going with her they must be smoking crack. I could see her as Rebecca, though.
Nevertheless, it's interesting that Jill is among the first rumored casting choices. Could this mean that the reboot will actually follow the story from the games more faithfully?
Given the direction of Leto's Joker, there was absolutely no way in hell he would have ever been recieved positively whether the film was good or not. Everyone loved Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad despite how bad it was. That version of the Joker was just never destined to be great given all the sh*tty creative choices they made with him beforehand, which is probably why they even cast Leto in the first place. And considering Leto went all "method" for the role and gave us what he did just absolutely solidifies how miscast he was with that awful voice and laugh.When it comes to Jared Leto's Joker and Jesse Eisenberg's Luthor, those had more to do with the overall quality of the films they were in and not their actual performances - because both Leto and Eisenberg are actually proven to be great actors. Of course like Turo said, even great actors can be miscast but the overall quality of the film itself is what matters the most. For example, I'm sure that Leto's Joker would've been much better received by fans and media if that film (Suicide Squad) didn't sideline him completely. If you put Joaquin Phoenix's Joker in Suicide Squad but didn't change anything about the story, it would've still been terrible.
He got the same amount of praise that fanboys and shills give anything that ever exists no matter how awful. The majority of people were against it.Nah, both of you are forgetting all the praise both media and fans were giving Leto's Joker before the movie came out. Of course there were some people who hated him already, but all in all there was lots of hype - especially after that first leaked teaser which ended with Leto's "I'm just gonna hurt you, really ,really bad." It even became a meme that people kept posting on other, unrelated videos.
