Lionsgate’s Making The ‘Dead Island’ Movie

Lionsgate's Making The 'Dead Island' Movie

Not that long ago we played and reviewed Dead Island, and if you remember we were kind of disappointed. One thing we did mention was how it didn’t live up to the awesome trailer they made for it. (see below) We also told you that the rights to make Dead Island into a movie had been bought after only 2 days.
Over on deadisland.deepsilver.com they have posted that Lionsgate will be the production company that will be making this movie, and it seems the movie will be based more on the game trailer rather than the game.

“Like the trailer that will serve as its primary creative inspiration, the film ‘Dead Island’ will be an innovation of the zombie genre because of its focus on human emotion, family ties and non-linear storytelling. ‘Like the hundreds of journalists and millions of fans who were so passionate and vocal about the Dead Island trailer, we too were awestruck… 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.'”
