|Yes, it's true! Coming soon to a theater near you, it's
Resident Evil! Supposedly starring Jason Patric in the
lead role of Chris Redfield, and possibly Samantha Mathis as the lovely Jill Valentine,
this flick is going to be made by the same guy that that did Night of the Living Dead, George Romero (if I'm not mistaken, but then again, maybe I
am). The planned date of release is sometime in '99, but details are sketchy at
best. No one really knows for sure who the other actors will be at this point.
George Romero has been confirmed as the director
of the movie. The production company will be Capcom and Constantine Films.
According to Electronic Gaming Monthly, Capcom hopes to release the movie
around the time of the third game's release. Since U.S. ratings may prevent a totally horrific movie from being
presented here in the states, Romero says that their plan is to perhaps make a
"Director's Cut," a
bloodier version available to countries with less restrictions. The plot will be
based on the first movie, and people are definitely excited, as it will be a movie for fans, not for kids.
- Jason Patric- up in arms over the role of Chris Redfield? (pun intended)
- My opinion
- Ok, the first Resident Evil was a little lame
to be honest. Perhaps they should have focused more on putting some of the Resident
Evil 2 characters in it as well. Actually, while I'm one the subject, I've got the
perfect actor choices! You be the judge!
- Leon Kennedy: to be played by Matthew Modine
- Look at the pictures! The left one came from the
Married to the Mob movie (with Modine and Pfeiffer), but I can see a clear resemblance
here. What do you think?
- Ada Wong: to be played by Ming-Na Wen
- I think she's a great actress, and hey, she's Chinese, so I
guess it works out. (no pics available)
- Claire Redfield: to be played by ???
- That's a tough one. I'm still thinking it over.
- Sherry Birkin: to be played by Hatty Jones
- I think that's her name, you know, the kid from the movie
Madeline. Although she's got an accent, and is a bit chubby, it could work.
- So there are my thoughts. Please
keep in mind that they are only MY OPINIONS. There are no confirmed reports
that a Resident Evil 2 movie is even being considered at this point, but let's keep our
fingers crossed. Do you agree with my ideas? If not, email me and tell me why.
