A Dead Island Film will be Produced by Liongate |

LIONSGATE just announced that it has optioned film rights from Deep Silver to develop a feature inspired by Dead Island.

The film DEAD ISLAND is currently in the early development stage with producers attached. Sean Daniel (THE MUMMY, TOMBSTONE, DAZED AND CONFUSED) will spearhead production through his Sean Daniel Company. A veteran producer with global franchises under his belt, Daniel is to be joined in producing by Stefan Sonnenfeld, who has been a pioneer in the post production field, using the process as a platform to create a unique visual brand with directors including J.J Abrams, Michael Bay and Gore Verbinski. Jason Brown of The Sean Daniel Company and Missy Papageorge for Sonnenfeld’s Sunny Field Productions are executive producing, with Sarah Perlman of Sunny Field Productions serving as co-producer.

Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate’s President of Motion Picture Production and Development is overseeing the project at the studio, with Jim Miller, SVP of Production and Development. Rob McEntegart, Senior EVP of Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group, negotiated the deal with Deep Silver’s U.S. attorney Ed Labowitz.

  • I just watched a movie called “The Dead” that would have made a good dead island flick. Ill see this regardless, brains, blood and boobs equals watch

  • I can only assume Oly will get us all parts in this movie or at least as extras.

  • Will it feature full frontal nudity like the game? lol

    I hope it’s good, but giving the latest zombie flicks i’ve seen it’s hard to get my hopes up.

  • wonder would there be a Xian and what she’d wear >:)

  • O why are we even doing a article about this. IT’S GOING TO SUCK. All the movies ALWAYS SUCK. Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter are the only 2 that ever didn’t massively suck, and that’s because it has Goro getting sacked in the balls, and Guile…. putting his foot… so FAR-AR… up the ASS. Of that damn BISON! BISON DOLLARS XD Props to SF2 the animated movie shower scene for tits.

  • Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter didn’t suck? ARE YOU INSANE?

    Those movies are complete garbage (MK a little less).

  • Remember I said MASSIVELY They do suck Oh yes. But not MASSIVELY.

  • i thought the Hitman movie was pretty decent

  • sure if you pretend it has nothing to do with hitman
