Dead Island movie?

Written by David Stellmack

Lionsgate has optioned it for film
It seems that Dead Island has done something right. Besides much better than expected sales and very good reviews, word now reaches us that just maybe a Dead Island film is in the future.

Lionsgate has optioned the rights to make a movie based on the video game Dead Island. The original Dead Island trailer will serve as the inspiration and starting point for the development of the film. The creation of a script based on Dead Island is in the very early stages.

The development is being spearheaded by Sean Daniel, who has been involved with such films as The Mummy, Tombstone, and Dazed and Confused. His company, the “Sean Daniel Company”, will be responsible for the initial production and will co-produce. Daniel has worked with a number of big name directors, so you never know you might end up directing.

No word yet on a target date for release.

WOW, Sean Daniel. I loved The Mummy series. This is great news, though I think they should release a Left 4 Dead film also seeing how L4D 1 & 2 are a lot more popular due to them being out for so long... :-)

But they are based on films. Notice the loading screens and the film grain effect. Making a L4D movie would be making a movie about a video game which is based on movies.

Oh, and L4D > L4D2.
