The online game movie adaptation machine retains merrily chugging together with Blumhouse Productions and Atomic Monster teaming up with Behaviour Interactive to supply 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 stated within the announcement, “In Useless by Daylight the Behaviour crew has created a love letter to the world of horror, constructing an unimaginable setting teeming with environment and terrifying villains — excellent for a scary cinematic adaptation.”
A Useless by Daylight adaptation makes extra sense than whatever Pixels was or no matter the live-action Pac-Man movie could be. For those who’ve by no means performed it, it’s a multiplayer co-op horror survival sport during which 4 survivors should escape a fog-laden enviornment whereas a fifth participant pilots a monster out to kill them. Whereas Useless by Daylight does have its personal unique survivors and killers, many of the extra fashionable characters are taken from horror franchises throughout video games, TV, and films, like Freddy from Nightmare on Elm Avenue and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil.
Whereas the crew continues to be searching for 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 might 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?
