Sony’s PlayStation Productions has announced yet another movie adaptation from one of their titles – this time confirming an Until Dawn movie is in development.
The new Until Dawn movie (via Hollywood Reporter) will be directed by David F. Sandberg (Shazam!), produced by Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions, and will be produced by horror screenwriter Gary Dauberman (It, Annabelle, and The Nun).
Details on the new Until Dawn movie are scant but Screen Gems describe it as an “R-rated love letter to the horror genre, centering on an ensemble cast.”
Dauberman is doing a pass on the script originally penned by Blair Butler, who previously wrote Sony’s vampire movie The Invitation. Dauberman signed a deal with Screen Gems and Sony to produce horror movies for the companies.
The original game was set in a mountain region where eight young adults have to survive when their lives become endangered. The game features a butterfly effect system where players have to make choices that effect the story, and all playable characters can survive or die, pending your actions.
Also producing the new film are Sandberg and Lotta Losten via their Mångata production company, alongside Roy Lee from Vertigo Entertainment, and both Asad Qizilbash and Carter Swan from PlayStation Productions.
Until Dawn was originally released for PlayStation 4 on back in 2015, while its virtual reality spinoff Until Dawn: Rush of Blood was released a year later in 201.
