It seems like Dead Island will be the next game upcoming to the big screen as the popular entertainment studio, Lionsgate, announced earlier today.

According to Lionsgate's president, Joe Drake, the idea came from the controversial teaser trailer which featured a family's struggle as they fight against zombies on their summer vacation. The studio believes the way in which this trailer focuses on a family would be an innovation within the zombie genre.

No cast lists at the moment, however, they did say that Sean Daniel would be heading the production. His resume includes The Mummy and Dazed and Confused. Dead Island was released 6th September this past year.
