PlayStation horror title Until Dawn is getting a movie adaptation

It has been confirmed that Supermassive Games' 2015 horror title, Until Dawn, will receive a movie adaptation.

The details:

  • As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, The Nun writer Gary Dauberman has joined the production to help adapt the game based on a script written by The Invitation writer Blair Butler. According to Screen Gems, the film is an "R-rated love letter to the horror genre, centering on an ensemble cast."

  • David F. Sandberg, who directed Shazam! and Lights Out, has also signed on as its director. Sandberg has previously collaborated with Dauberman, with the two directing and writing 2017's Annabelle: Creation.

  • Until Dawn was a surprise hit upon its release, with the interactive title adhering to classic slasher movie tropes while allowing players to make decisions that could determine the fate of its cast. The game featured characters played by Rami Malek and Hayden Panettiere, but it is unclear whether the film will bring back its original actors.

  • Fans are already concerned about the movie adaptation's ability to capture the feeling of choice found in the game, fearing that it will end up being just another forgettable horror film. Some have come up with unique ideas for the film's release, such as creating different versions with different endings for different screenings, similar to 1985's Clue.
