Episode 80: George A. Romero’s Resident Evil Documentary Interview

Announced today at Creature Feature Weekend, The Resident Evil Podcast are delighted to bring you this exclusive interview with the creators of the upcoming documentary about the lost Resident Evil movie that was to be directed by the grandfather of zombies himself - George A. Romero.

The story is one of legend with Romero due to direct the first live action adaptation of Resident Evil following his involvement with the Biohazard 2 commercial. However, it was not to be and the project was removed from the director. This documentary will bring to light what happened by the people that were there at the time.

This podcast brings together two of the creators of this documentary - Jason Bareford - George Romero's production assistant who personally worked on many Romero projects including the Biohazard 2 commercial and Brandon Salisbury - writer & filmmaker and the lead on this incredible undertaking.

So join the team as we chat with the pair all about how this film came into being, the passion behind all things Romero and Resident Evil and lament what could have been. We also have a sub-discussion on the existing live action RE films, but please note that this podcast was recorded in May 2022 meaning the Netflix show had not yet dropped (nor cancelled!)

Please enjoy!
