It looks like Sony has another game being adapted into a movie. We started to see a bit of a trend lately regarding video games being turned into television series and cinematic films. After years of seeing these adaptations fail to hit much of a positive reception from critics and fans alike, it seems that has changed. But before we get too ahead of ourselves, we’ll have to see how some of these upcoming productions do. One of the latest video games to get a film adaptation treatment is Sony’s Until Dawn.
Until Dawn is a title from the development team Supermassive Games. This survival horror title is played in an interactive cinematic experience. Essentially, players are following a group of survivors who are stuck in a mountain cabin while being stalked by a mysterious entity. However, players are constantly presented with a series of choices to go through the game. Depending on these choices will determine the outcome of the storyline. As a result, you might see certain characters die, which gives plenty of replay value as you attempt to see how you can keep everyone safe throughout the night.
Now, this game is being adapted by the director David F. Sandberg, with the script being put together by Blair Butler. David has previously directed Annabelle: Creation and Lights Out, so he’s already got some horror film credits on his resume. So we’ll have to see how he does regarding the film adaptation. Of course, details are still scarce as this report stems back to The Hollywood Reporter. So we’ll just need to see what else comes out regarding this production as we progress through the year.
Meanwhile, this isn’t the only shred of news to come out recently regarding the Until Dawn. Earlier this month, a report revealed that Until Dawn was in production with another team before Supermassive Games received the IP. At the end of the day, Supermassive Games was an incredible horror experience. In fact, they have kept up with the same gameplay style. Since Until Dawn was released, Supermassive Games released similar titles, such as The Quarry, along with The Dark Pictures Anthology.
Some of their current video game projects being developed right now are The Casting of Frank Stone along with the next installment to The Dark Pictures Anthology, Directive 8020. For now, you can view a trailer for the Until Dawn game in the video we have embedded below.
