A movie adaptation of the hit video game Dead by Daylight is in the works by Atomic Monster and Blumhouse.
The Dead by Daylight movie adaptation will see game developer Behaviour Interactive team up with the two film studios. Currently, the companies are commencing a search for a director and screenwriter for the project, with no official casting or even plot synopsis points available for the film at this time. In a statement on the project, Atomic Monster Founder and CEO James Wan praised the developer for creating “a love letter to the world of horror.”
“In Dead by Daylight, the Behaviour team has created a love letter to the world of horror, building an incredible environment teeming with atmosphere and terrifying villains — perfect for a scary cinematic adaptation. We’re big fans of the game at Atomic Monster, and are thrilled to be teaming up with Blumhouse to bring this frighteningly visceral world to the big screen,” said Wan.
Jason Blum, the Founder and CEO of Blumhouse, also added that they’re looking to find someone “who appreciates and loves the world” of Dead by Daylight to help bring the game to the big screen.
