Film rights to the survival horror video game Dead Island have been sold to Lionsgate. Producers Sean Daniel (The Mummy) and Stefan Sonnenfeld are developing the project.

Since going on sale September 6, two million copies of Dead Island have sold to gamers. [Full story]- Lionsgate. Comment on this Scoop (0)
