Netflix is developing a scripted series based on the hit action horror franchise.
It's worth noting, though, that Netflix hasn't officially confirmed anything - and something else might make you stop in your tracks. It is now searching for a showrunner to lead the adaptation.
If you were expecting a grittier, more dramatic take on Resident Evil, or simply weren't a fan of the Milla Jovovich-starring flicks, then maybe this won't be for you.
In the world of mostly awful video game movies, a couple of the Resident Evils aren't too bad-I remember enjoying the first one when it came out, and the most recent entry wasn't bad, though Metacritic disagrees.
The show is still in early stages, but it's expected to included a number of "signature elements" the franchise has been known for, including action sequences and Easter Eggs. The new series will shed light on the "inner workings" of the Umbrella Corporation, the corrupt pharmaceutical company that unleashed the T-virus on the world and turned countless humans into zombies.
YouTube's "Philly Wonken" has shared a video, showing what a remastered version of Resident Evil 2 could look like. The movies earned over $1 billion at the box office. Not only is it a very successful game series, but a movie series as well.
