Vi jublede alle ved synet af den fantastiske teaser-trailer for Dead Island (se eller gense den herunder).
Lionsgate har åbenbart også jublet. Om ikke andet har de nu snappet licensen til at filmatisere Dead Island og udtaler, at de ligesom millioner af fans elskede den oprindelige trailer og håber, at de kan genskabe den utrolige stemning.
Vi vover forsigtigt pelsen og glæder os en anelse. I det mindste er Uwe Boll ikke at spore nogen steder.
The film DEAD ISLAND is currently in the early development stage with producers attached. Sean Daniel (THE MUMMY, TOMBSTONE, DAZED AND CONFUSED) will spearhead production through his Sean Daniel Company. A veteran producer with global franchises under his belt, Daniel is to be joined in producing by Stefan Sonnenfeld, who has been a pioneer in the post production field, using the process as a platform to create a unique visual brand with directors including J.J Abrams, Michael Bay and Gore Verbinski. Jason Brown of The Sean Daniel Company and Missy Papageorge for Sonnenfeld's Sunny Field Productions are executive producing, with Sarah Perlman of Sunny Field Productions serving as co-producer.
Alli Shearmur, Lionsgate's President of Motion Picture Production and Development is overseeing the project at the studio, with Jim Miller, SVP of Production and Development. Rob McEntegart, Senior EVP of Lionsgate's Motion Picture Group, negotiated the deal with Deep Silver's U.S. attorney Ed Labowitz.
