Dead Island Comes to the Big Screen

It all started with an eerie trailer depicting the degradation of a family on their vacation.  Opening with a look into the eerie eyes of a dead little girl, you see what happened to her in reverse.  LionsGate Films has obtained film right for a movie version of the game.  Let’s hope the island location of it put it far away from zombie movies that have become a little redundant throughout the years.  The movie will be strongly drawing from the original trailer in all aspects of creativity.  This Dead Island movie has been hinted to have intense emotional and familial ties in the story.  Dead Island has been released on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
