    GODDAMNIT!!! THEY BROKE THE RULE!!!

    They said they WOULDN'T use the characters from the games so they could kill them at will. Now, they're forced to let them live. Though I do like the casting...

    Even so, I hope it comes out good (or better than the first, which was pretty good). Maybe they could actually make it scary (big city, nighttime, big strong creepy evil being chasing you around and trying to kill you, etc.).

    This is great news!

    This sounds like it could be better than the first.

    And yes, I'm one of many who loved this film.

    John, I must give you credit, you always have THE best signature of anybody on the forum, and this one's no exception! Love the pix, too -- what movies are they from? (Left and right of your mugshot, obviously [​IMG])

    Resident Evil 2: Nemesis

    Star Trek: Nemesis

    Its a subtitle more than anything for RE2.

    I think that they shouldn't use the characters from the games because the movies already set themselves apart from the games. They should make the stories somewhat parallel, but leave the similarities at that.

    The following news was discovered on the Dark Horizons website.

    Resident Evil 2: Nemesis: Things seem to be moving quickly with the IMDB listing an October 31st 2003 release date. Coming Soon meanwhile had a report from Paul Anderson: "For the role of Jill Valentine, I carefully chose who I wanted to play her. At first I contacted Natasha Henstridge, but with her other projects she wanted to persue, it was impossible to have her for the role. Mira Sorvino is next on my list. I think she resembles Jill alot and would fit the role perfectly as well. I hope everything goes well, and she will say yes to our script. As for the other roles I have in mind. They are not so concrete yet, but I will mention that "Carlos Olivera" from Resident Evil 3(the game) is on my list. Also we can't forget Milla Jovovich and Eric Mabius. The have said yes to the script and will return as well as I mentioned before in my last interview. As far as the story goes, I can't reveal too much, but I will say that Jill Valentine and Alice will never meet in the story. There will be two seperate stories going on in the movie".

    As one of the only people in the universe who liked the original, I'm glad to see this one moving ahead so quickly!
    Too bad about Henstridge though. She's freakin' gorgeous. Hey, how about Denise Richards? [​IMG]

    I dunno Scott, if Denise had shown the ability to play anything other than zombies in her film career to date, I might think she could do the job [​IMG].
    As it stands, she'd be better suited to a villain role. Or attractive doorstop [​IMG].
