Lionsgate Purchases Dead Island Movie Rights

A long drawn out tug of war for the film rights to recent videogame releae Dead Island has come to an end. Lionsgate had emmerged the victor to the property which has sold over 2 million copies and boasted a teaser trailer about a year ago that had over a million views in 24 hours.

I haven’t been able to play the videogame myself but based off of player responses the game has its fair share of problems in regards to the story which apparently had little to nothing to do with the original teaser. I have seen the teaser and I adored it, so I would love to see a feature that expanded or was built around something similar to that.

No other detailed news about any other plans for the film adaptation were latest out. The game is currently available for purchase and rental should you feel compelled to check it out.

What do you think of the possibility of a Dead Island full lenght feature?
