The zombies are coming for us, and developer Techland is leading them.  With a focus on first person melee slaying, Deep Silver will be publishing this awesome game. You can find out more about the game here. Now, watch the trailer below. After watching it, come back to this article and tell us if you would like to see a full length movie based on this franchise.  If so, you will be encouraged to hear that Deep Silver has the exclusive rights to create such a film, and they want to do it right, not like a certain *cough*Uncharted movie *cough.*

“We are looking for quality above all else for a movie based on Dead Island. We want to do it the right way as film realizations of games (or vice versa) usually fail to deliver what the fans were looking for. We will not go down this route with Dead Island. Deep Silver profoundly believes in the quality and value of its Dead Island IP,” says Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver’s parent company Koch Media. “We would therefore be honored to work with someone who already has a proven track record with blockbuster movies.”
