Today Techland and Game UK have announced a very exciting opportunity for one lucky fan to fund the entire upcoming Dying Light movie. For ten million dollars, yes, ten, TEN, ten million dollars, you can purchase the Spotlight Edition of Dying Light: The Following Enhanced Edition, a package that includes, among other things, a speaking role on screen in the movie.
As the image below reveals, the bundle comes with a number of other rewards, including professional acting lessons from Roger Craig Smith, the voice of Kyle Crane (and Chris Redfield from Resident Evil and Ezio from Assassin’s Creed), a screening tour with first class accommodation and flights, a personal on set trailer stocked with amenities, stuntman and parkour training (or a stunt double, if you prefer), an “off road driving course” (you keep the car), an original copy of the script signed by the cast, ten VIP tickets for opening night, a special effects makeup session, several signed copies of the game, and in a special edition (possibly private) of the game, a speaking role as the voice of Kyle Crane in Dying Light.
The list of perks is very impressive, you know, if you forget that you’re technically the one paying for them. 10 million dollars is enough budget to write, direct, and cast an independent film of your own. Or enough money for the producers of a Dying Light film to pay a big action star like Jason Statham to take the lead. Of course, that’s assuming the movie will ever be made or that someone will step up to pay $10,000,000 to make it happen. Hey what’s Martin Shkreli doing these days?
