    Default Degeneration Interview with Hiroyuki Kobayashi & Makoto Kamiya

    Horror movie website, Shock Til You Drop has landed an interview with the Director and Producer on the film. The subjects range from the production of the film, up to how they feel about the live-action movies with Milla Jovovich. Its a good read, so be sure to check it out!

    Degeneration Interview Thanks to Joshua!

    Kamiya: I can't really talk about that too much. Other than zombies, you'll be seeing some new creatures. This film does feature a lot of zombies though, I'm also a big fan of the zombie genre, so you'll be seeing a lot of zombies going wild at the airport.
    Can't wait for this film now lol the zombies and the environments are what made the old resi games the best.

    And the occasional emo-haired Leon Kennedy wannabes dressed to the hilt in his S.T.A.R.S uniform and ready to pop a cap in some zombie's cranium.
    That would've been me if I had been there. D:

    Factual error notwithstanding.

    Short but nice. Loved the bit about there being loads of zombies. Made me completely happy.

    it has to be faithful to the video game franchise and we didn't want to contradict any facts.
    If they don't want to contradict any facts, why the hell are they having Leon choose between Claire and some broad named Angela?

    Capcom thus far has made it kind of clear that Leon and Ada were the intended couple. Though I do realize that Leon and Ada having a happily ever after can never be, I must admit my annoyance at Hiroyuki Kobayashi and Makoto Kamiya for ruining a perfectly good (and might I add deliciously angsty) plot line.

    *sigh*

    I think you're taking this a little too seriously. When he said what he did, he was joking. At least according to the people I've spoken with who were actually at the panel.

    3 Women clearly isn't enough to sate the appetite of the War-God that is Leon Scott Kennedy :p.

    Leon's such a super cool 007-agent-cum-Solid-Snake operative, that women everywhere become pregnant just by being in his presence.

    So don't worry, there's still hope that he and Ada end up together. Leon can have more than one babe.

    His only rule: they can't have better hair than him.

    I think you're right!

    XD

    Well that's a relief that they're joking. I just really like the Leon/Ada pairing (can't ya tell!).

    But I'm still gonna see this movie, regardless of what happens! It comes out on my birthday :3

    No offense but Leon and Ada is probably more cliche than Leon and Claire. Look at what Ada does: She is a professional backstabber possibly working for something worse than Umbrella. You honestly think Leon would be all happy go lucky about that? Of course...with Leon's super hero powers, he'd do exactly what rabid L/A fangirls want and change her completely into a good girl, thus ruining Ada completely.


    I'm hoping we'll see a few new trailers sometime soon. I'm wondering when Famitsu or one of the other big name Japanese magazines will post some new things as well...

    I don't think Capcom really cares about "who ends up with who" in the RE universe, and quite frankly, I can't blame them. In fact, I'm glad they don't.

    Exactly. Why does everything have to turn into a cheesy romance? The whole love thing is a big waste of time and just creates drama

    Don't forget Hunnigan, even though she played him.

    I never said I wanted a happy go lucky romance for Leon and Ada. I love the fact that they can never have a normal life. I love the fact that Leon can't change Ada into a good girl. That's what's so interesting about the pairing! There's really nothing cheesy about it. Cheesy is Leon/Claire, as much as I like Claire, Hero and Heroine is so played out even more than Hero and Femme Fatale.

    Though I'm not exclusively a Leon/Ada fan, I'm also a fan of Ada/Wesker. I find it dark and dangerous.

    *sigh*

    And if you look at any good action movie or story, there's always a romantic element, whether its lust, attraction, physical, or love. I would hate for Resident Evil to turn into a 'cheesy romance', but sometimes good plots need the big 'L' word. Love.

    Resident Evil already has a prevalent LOVE theme...zombies LOVE brains.

    Why do I hear groans and crickets?

    You hear groans because zombies cant talk.

    The thing is...not everyone has to end up with someone. The only romance I can see is between Chris and Jill since they've actually spent a good deal of time together. With Leon being a player and Ada being...well not so loyal, I can see the pair working out well...on the Jerry Springer show as they both parade their more obese, redneck lovers with them and everyone has fights while audience members flash everyone.

    I know not everyone has to end up with someone, and I'm not asking for that. If that happend than Resident Evil would be more like the show FRIENDS where everyone settles down and has babies.

    The thing is, I write Fan Fiction, so I look into this crap probably more than I should.

    But I so understand where you are coming from Rosetta, so pleae don't think one of those insane RE shippers.

    :]

    Regardless if Ada is or isn't in this film, I'm still gonna see it. I'm still gonna buy it. Why? Because Im, in essence, a Resident Evil fan.
