The online game movie adaptation machine retains merrily chugging together with Blumhouse Productions and Atomic Monster teaming up with Behaviour Interactive to provide a feature-length movie adaptation of Dead By Daylight.
The announcement of the brand new enterprise comes days after Blumhouse shared that it’s starting its own gaming division. Atomic Monster founder and CEO James Wan mentioned within the announcement, “In Lifeless by Daylight the Behaviour group has created a love letter to the world of horror, constructing an unimaginable atmosphere teeming with environment and terrifying villains — excellent for a scary cinematic adaptation.”
A Lifeless by Daylight adaptation makes extra sense than whatever Pixels was or no matter the live-action Pac-Man movie could be. Should you’ve by no means performed it, it’s a multiplayer co-op horror survival sport wherein 4 survivors should escape a fog-laden enviornment whereas a fifth participant pilots a monster out to kill them. Whereas Lifeless by Daylight does have its personal authentic survivors and killers, many of the extra well-liked characters are taken from horror franchises throughout video games, TV, and flicks, like Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Road and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil.
Whereas the group continues to be in search of a director and screenwriter, it’ll be attention-grabbing to see how Blumhouse and Atomic Monster adapt the sport because it makes liberal use of iconic (and copyrighted) characters from throughout horror historical past. Or, they may simply not make a horror film in any respect and adapt Dead By Daylight’s dating sim. I imply, who wouldn’t desire a rom-com with a cenobite?
