One of the greatest trailers we have seen for a long time came from the zombie game Dead Island. The initial trailer basically took the world by storm and soon after, we heard the first rumblings that Dead Island has been considered for a movie.
Well, it looks like that time is getting closer, as according to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate has optioned the film rights from the video game publisher Deep Silver to create a movie based upon Dead Island.
Joe Drake the Lionsgate motion picture group president mentioned;
“This is exactly the type of property we’re looking to adapt at Lionsgate – it’s sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love. It also has built in brand recognition around the world, and franchise potential,”
So, expect to hear more on this one in the months to come, who would you like to direct an adaptation of Dead Island?
