Posted: February 20th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Update: "The Mummy" Producer Developing "Dead Island" MovieSubmit Comment
Producer Sean Daniel has been following the development of Techland's "Dead Island" video game for years. A few days ago, the trailer for the game appeared online (watch it below) and quickly became a big hit.

The Wrap has now learned that Daniel has teamed with Union Entertainment to acquire the movie rights to "Dead Island" and is now planning to turn the game into a feature film. Daniel has been a producer for years and has developed such projects as "The Wolfman," "The Mummy" trilogy, in addition to "Mallrats," "Dazed and Confused," "Tombstone" and "Village of the Damned."

Plot: The story revolves around a family that has the bad fortune to vacation in an island paradise during a contagious zombie outbreak. The family is cut off from the rest of the world and has to protect the other survivors and escape.

Update: Deep Silver, the owner of the property, has just revealed that the film right have yet to be sold, despite plenty of offers.

The whole thing has been confirmed by Deep Silver as nothing more than a rumour.

What a trailer!!! Very well produced and unforgiving. If this were the trailer for an upcoming film I would be first in line to see it. Hwood will find a way to f*ck it up though.

It's sad that there wasn't single zombie movie that could give you emotions like this trailer did.

First thing i thought of was whos flashback is this, and is this a little girl version of john locke..

id say it looks as if they drew a lot of inspiration from Lost.
Zoom out from the eye to start it off, falling backwards out a the window, non chronological storytelling, and being set on an island.
i miss lost... sigh..
