The recent release of Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dead IslandÃ¢â‚¬ has gained good reception on the gameplay. However, what made Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dead IslandÃ¢â‚¬ a big success was something better than the game itself. When the trailer for the game hit the internet, about 10 million hits were made to the video in just 2 days.
With a huge response to the trailer, LionsGate Entertainment has bought the rights to the video game fromDeep Silver, who published the game. In a statement released from LionsGate, they said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“This is exactly the type of property weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re looking to adapt at Lionsgate. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s sophisticated, edgy, and a true elevation of a genre that we know and love.Ã¢â‚¬
Although it is still in the early stages of development, LionsGate has chosen Sean Davis, who has produced Ã¢â‚¬Å“Dazed and ConfusedÃ¢â‚¬, Ã¢â‚¬Å“TombstoneÃ¢â‚¬, and Ã¢â‚¬Å“The MummyÃ¢â‚¬ series, will be producing this zombie movie.
