Hot off the press is this special announcement from Deep Silver, publisher of the internet sensation Dead Island. The first video of the game was only just posted this week and it’s infectious hooks have spread all over the internet, taking hold of it’s innocent victims, and stripping their bodies of their flesh and brains. The game isn’t scheduled for release until later this year, yet talks about a full motion film are already in the works. Read this press release to find out more information.
Since video games publisher Deep Silver revealed the upcoming game Dead Island™ this week, its accompanying promotional trailer has created a tremendous amount of buzz in the internet community and has been hailed a “Must See” throughout.
As a result, Deep Silver has received a massive amount of interest in the film adaptation rights to the Dead Island IP. Contrary to rumors that have been circulating, neither the film rights nor any other licenses have yet been sold by Deep Silver, which is the sole IP holder of the Dead Island brand.
While no decision has been made yet regarding Dead Island’s movie rights, Deep Silver is currently looking through a vast amount of inquiries. Key for the decision is a focus on the quality of the resulting motion picture: “We are looking for quality above all else for a movie based on Dead Island. We want to do it the right way as film realizations of games (or vice versa) usually fail to deliver what the fans were looking for. We will not go down this route with Dead Island. Deep Silver profoundly believes in the quality and value of its Dead Island IP,” says Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver’s parent company Koch Media. “We would therefore be honored to work with someone who already has a proven track record with blockbuster movies.”
Thank You Deep Silver! I am a zombie movie freak and if this comes to fruition, it’s going to be “killer”. I will be the first in line to go see Dead Island, the movie.
