** [[Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968 George A. Romero]] wrote [[http://www.dailyscript.com/scripts/resident_evil_romero.html a screenplay]] for and was to direct the first film. It was thrown out entirely when he was kicked off the project. Capcom thought that, while Romero's script was close, it wasn't a full adaptation of the game, and they believed fans would complain about the changes while newcomers would dislike the premise. But confusion sets in when they approved Paul W.S. Anderson's script even though it's a much, ''much'' farther cry from ''Resident Evil''.[[note]]In as few words as possible, Romero's script was a rough adaptation of the first game and included all of the main characters, while Anderson's was a completely original story that featured all new characters, and whose only connection to the games was Umbrella, the T-virus and zombies.[[/note]] WordOfGod is that Capcom didn't want a direct adaptation, out of fear that fans would stop playing the games in favor of watching the movies.

** Had Sienna Guillory not been preoccupied with the ''Film/{{Eragon}}'' movie, Jill would have fulfilled Claire Redfield's role in ''[[Film/ResidentEvilExtinction Extinction]]''. Her dropping out of the third movie caused an entire subplot to be removed, in which Jill is hostile and untrustful towards Alice, due to Alice apparently [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse killing Angela "Angie" Ashford between films while under Umbrella's control.]] This subplot would have culminated with Jill being infected by a zombified Carlos, and sacrificing herself in the tanker the way Carlos does in the finished script. The novelization keeps Angie's death intact, but says that Jill is off leading a bunch of other survivors.

* ReferencedBy: ''Last Empire: War Z'', a ZombieApocalypse base-building game for Smartphones, has an item that looks identical to the T-Virus samples-ie, a glass jar with a double-helix decoration down the middle, capped with a metal plug on each end, filled with green liquid. To really ram it home, the item is called "Virus Stock" and is used to manufacture zombie-based SuperSoldiers-basically Tyrants and other BOW's.

** The original versions of ''[=RE2=]'' and ''[=RE4=]'', known as ''Resident Evil 1.5'' and ''3.5'', respectively. Both versions were scrapped due to the developers being unsatisfied with the direction they were taking. One of the scrapped ''Resident Evil 4'' ideas had Leon going through a castle fighting living dolls. Which was deemed too "supernatural" for a series based on science. The two versions of ''Resident Evil 4'' before that got retooled into ''Franchise/DevilMayCry'' (the "Stylish" build) and ''VideoGame/HauntingGround'' (the "Castle" build) respectively. At one point, according to an interview with the actor who played Leon, Leon was actually supposed to be killed as a result of the virus mutating inside of him, but this tested poorly even among Capcom executives and the idea was scrapped (Paul Mercier was kept, much to his delight, however).

* AuthorExistenceFailure: With the death of the scenario writer, Noboru Sugimura, Capcom refused to provide an actual conclusion to the cliffhanger, which saw [[spoiler:Wesker raise an army armed with advanced B.O.W.s in order to kill Umbrella security officers, allowing him to steal research data and samples to gain influence with black market terrorists]]. The original conclusion was the 2000-2002 "Castle" version of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'', in which [[spoiler:Wesker's army attacks Umbrella's headquarters and mutually destroys Leon's organization, US-STRATCOM (introduced in ''[[VideoGame/ResidentEvilGunSurvivor Dead Aim]]''), who have also attacked the base]]. Later games acknowledge that [[spoiler:Wesker became rich on the black market and indirectly caused the terrorism throughout the series]], but what happened to [[spoiler:H.C.F.]] is left a mystery.
