A few years ago, Lionsgate picked up the film rights to Dead Island but now Deep Silver is moving forward with Occupant Entertainment to "package, produce, and finance" an adaptation.

It's unclear which direction the movie will go in, though Occupant partners Joe Neurauter and Felipe Marino said in an announcement that the series' trailers "provide a great template for launching a film franchise with a distinctive and commercial take on the zombie apocalypse."

There's of course the original Dead Island CGI trailer, which was dramatic and emotional, but then there's also that silly Dead Island 2 trailer to draw from. The former worked well as a standalone three-minute video, but I'd rather watch a feature-length film in line with the latter's tone.

Occupant says it will "fast track the project for a production start in Q1 of 2015."
