Dead Island Film Rights Get Bought Up, Do You Want Another Zombie Movie?

It hasn’t been but a few days since the game’s incredibly emotional trailer went viral and Hollywood’s already laying plans for a film adaptation. Could this be the video game movie we’ve all been dreaming for? Looking at Hollywood’s pedigree, I’ll be keeping my hopes low until I know more.

What we know so far is The Sean Daniel Company and Union Entertainment have purchased the film rights to Dead Island. Sean Daniel (The Mummy) will be producing the film alongside Union’s Dmitri Johnson and Richard Liebowitz and apparently, they’ve already begun the search for a writer as well as talks with studios. So the only question remains, would do you want in a Dead Island film? [News via Variety.]

    It’s hard not to have any sort of cliche in a zombie movie anymore. The last zombie movie I really liked was maybe Dawn of the Dead remake.
