Netflix developing a 'Resident Evil' TV series

Deadline Hollywood is now reporting the long-running survival horror series is set to become a Netflix Original television series.

A new report has emerged today from Deadline which suggests that Netflix is now working on a Resident Evil TV series. Paul W.S. Anderson directed the first six Resident Evil films, which starred Milla Jovovich as Alice from 2002 until 2016.

The Resident Evil films have never exactly been my cup of tea, but I have something of a begrudging respect for them.

No cast or crew have been announced, and not even a showrunner has been put in place a la the Witcher Netflix series - but we can dream, especially with the promise of "action sequences and Easter eggs" being dotted throughout. 21 years later, on the eve of the release of the Resident Evil 2 remake, Capcom has revealed a new live-action trailer heavily inspired by that original. The movies earned over $1 billion at the box office.

"Produced by United Kingdom creative agency SpecialGun Productions, the advert enlists crew from such high-profile productions as Star Wars, Game of Thrones, Crazy Rich Asians, Mission: Impossible, and Black Mirror, in order to bring the terrifying world of Resident Evil 2 to life". A film reboot with a new cast is also in the works with 47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts. Examine this in your inventory and spin it around until you see an interaction point.
