Considering that we’re now preparing ourselves for a sixth entry in the Resident Evil franchise, it wouldn’t surprise me if many of you forgot that at one point none other than George A. Romero, the man who created the modern zombie genre, was going to write and direct a feature-length adaptation based on the highly popular video game franchise. After all, Romero was assigned to the movie in 1999, a completely different century than the one we’re in now. Feel old yet?
And while the current franchise is quite popular and has its dedicated fans, there are still a few of us who wonder what could’ve been had Romero been the one to tell the story. Among those who ponder this are the folk over at Rejected Storytellers, who have put together a fun little video that recalls what Romero’s story would’ve included, including sticking with protagonists Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine and keeping the story in the Spencer Mansion.
