NEWS: Dead Island To Be A Movie After Success Of Trailer

Days after Dead Isand's incredible trailer was released, the film rights have already been snapped up based purely on the short clip featured here a couple of days ago.

That's right. If you haven't seen the trailer already click here to see it - as it is incredible and almost brought me to a tear! The slow-mo parallel narrative that the online community are comparing to 'Lost' is a heart-wrenching, haunting couple of minutes promoting the forthcoming Dead Island game, a sandbox RPG shooter set on a zombie infested tropical paradise.

Now we hear that Sean Daniel who has worked on, well, not the best movies ('The Wolfman', 'The Mummy')  has bought the rights with his new Sean Daniel Company (egotistical much?). Game producers Techland are running to the bank laughing, and they've not even released the game yet! I'm struggling to think of another example of movie rights being bought for a game before release - I don't think it's happened. Anyone else think of anything?
