Dead Island Film Adaptation In The Works


Deep Silver really, really want a Dead Island film to happen as its been reported by Polygon that they’ve signed a second deal for a movie adaptation of the zombie franchise. After a deal in 2011 with Lionsgate timed-out, Deep Silver have now paired up with Occupant Entertainment, for a film that will hopefully see release in the next couple of years. It’s unclear what part of Dead Island the film will be based on, or if it will follow any of the games at all and be its own new story, as Occupant Entertainment’s Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino states “Deep Silver has created a highly successful game franchise based on very cinematic, widely viewed and well received trailers, which provide a great template for launching a film franchise with a distinctive and commercial take on the zombie apocalypse.”
There is no director or producer attached to the project as yet, Occupant hope to being production early 2015.
