Dead Island Coming to Big Screen

Dead Island Coming to Big Screen
Dead Island, the video game featuring zombies who attack travelers while on vacation on a paradise island, is being made for the big screen. Movie rights have been acquired by Lionsgate.

Joke Drake from Lionsgate said, "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."
