A Quiet Place creators were given the chance to write a Resident Evil movie, but passed on it

Now that would have been interesting

Scott Beck and Bryan Woods were the writing team behind A Quiet Place, the mega-successful horror film directed by John Krasinski. That film opened up a lot of doors for the writing duo, and gave them opportunities to create all sorts of projects. One of those opportunities was for a Resident Evil movie, which the two ended up passing on.

In an interview with Comicbook.com, Bryan Woods shares details on their ideas for the film. While the duo did pass on the idea, it seems they're open to revisiting in the future. Hopefully you're listening, Capcom!

"There's been a lot of stuff that's crossed our desk. There's been stuff where we're like, 'Oh wow, thanks for thinking of us. What an honor.' But wasn't the right thing,. I think the one thing that crossed our desk that we explored for a second and would be open to continuing to explore it, although I think they probably wouldn't want to go in as outrageous of a direction as we would want to take it, I think they want to go in a more conventional direction, but Resident Evil is probably the one piece of IP that we were interested in that's crossed our desk, just because we grew up with that first game. The first game was so cinematic and it was like the scariest thing. It almost felt scarier than any horror movie. We'd invite all of our friends over and one person would play the game. We'd all just watch as audience members and shriek anytime something scary happened.

We thought the zombie genre has gotten so tired. We've just seen every iteration of zombies you could possibly imagine. So, how do you do something new? With Resident Evil, we were like, 'Oh, maybe you could approach it like Sam Mendes approached 1917 and just do this insane, outrageous oner in the zombie genre with Resident Evil,' which feels organic to Resident Evil because those games feel like one big piece of movement and sustained piece of suspense. That was the one thing that we toyed with for like, five seconds. But, outside of that, the thrill for us is just creating new ideas and new worlds."

A Short Hike's creator explains his approach to the game's dialog

lol ok

A Short Hike is a cozy and inviting experience that you can feel in every aspect of the game. That includes the dialog, which was written with a very specific approach in mind. In a Nintendo Indie World feature, creator Adam Robinson-Yu shared his inspiration for the game's storytelling.

I wanted to write dialogue that was personal and meaningful—or at least funny. So, when I started A Short Hike, I made a few decisions that ended up making the writing a bit easier. I tried to write A Short Hike’s dialogue in the same way I write when I’m sending text messages. I avoided using capitalization and punctuation, and I broke sentences up into little snippets. This is how most of my written communication is these days, so it felt a lot easier to write natural conversations using this style. I also avoided using a silent protagonist, which I’d tried before, but found out that conversations flow much more naturally when two people are talking! When I started working on A Short Hike, I didn’t expect the dialogue to be such an important part it, so I approached things in a very improvisational manner and didn’t toil over it trying to make it perfect. I think this helped me get over my writing blocks.
