Let's hope this, unlike most game to movie adaptations actually turns out alright >_>

I dunno about Lionsgate handling this film though, looking back on their movie history I don't see too many films I particularly like.

Well, if they give it a decent budget. Not too big of a budget though, as that would just cause them to splurge on the SFX at the expense of the story (why work hard on a good story when you can fill it with CG and 'splosions?).

Though if it looks good enough (set design and such) with *ahem* attractive enough actresses and whatnot, I'm down as long as the story isn't director-throttlingly bad XD My standards for entertainment are low, I guess >_>

Oh why this?.. Why not something with a story, like Half-Life, Fallout, Mirrors Edge or something.. Something beautiful in itself. At least I don't want to watch a bunch of zombies, we've got enough of that in other movies.

It's a decent idea for a movie, I guess, but the game is so young and fresh. Why would they even consider this game yet?

Valve has already said they would handle HL themselves: http://www.neoseeker.com/news/14757-valve-says-they-would-handle-a-half-life-film-on-their-own/

Valve sure does have the cash to finance their own movie. Always confused me why they didn't branch out into other forms of media than just games.

If a zombie came out I'd prefer it to be something Left 4 Deadish. In my personal opinion, Dead Island really isn't that good of a game.

i knew they would make this into a movie after 15 mins of playing the game. hopefully they make a true zombie movie and not a PG-13 wanna be.
