Deep Silver- Dead Island movie rights not yet sold; want movie to have “quality above all else”
Deep Silver recently released an amazing trailer for their upcoming game, Dead Island. Ever since the release of that trailer, rumours of a Dead Island movie have been circulating the industry.
Deep Silver, however, have confirmed the rights to a Dead Island movie have not yet been sold, and that it is an IP of solely the developers and publishers.
“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.”
Stay tuned, we will keep you updated on this.
