Capcom has had quite the history with its Resident Evil franchise. Many people have fond memories of the early games, and when Resident Evil 4 appeared on the GameCube it threw everyone a curveball with its inventive new features. Recent additions have not been as well received, and the less said about the films the better.
All the more surprising then to discover that there are talks of a possible TV show based around the series. The only details so far are the working title Arklay – which takes its name from the fictitious mountainous region in the games – and the following proposal:
When Detective James Reinhardt is thrust into a series of bizarre homicides, he unravels the city is hiding a dark conspiracy. Learning a fatal virus is connected to it all, Reinhardt discovers it’s already coursing through him. With time no longer on his side, he must solve the conspiracy to save his own life.
The creator is one Shawn Christopher Lebertm, whose crowning moment from motion pictures was a Twilight spoof, so we know it's in good hands.
It's likely that this is a project that simply will not see the light of day, but are you excited anyway? What would you like to see from a gritty Resident Evil televisual spectacular? Do let us know.
