DEAD BY DAYLIGHT Making The Jump From The Gaming Consule To The Big Screen

A couple of Hollywood horror heavy hitters are teaming up to bring another popular horror gaming franchise to the theater. Blumhouse and James Wan’s ATOMIC MONSTER production arm will be the driving force behind DEAD BY DAYLIGHT.

DEAD BY DAYLIGHT has been terrorizing gamers since 2016 – and in actuality, a film adaptation is long overdue. Blumhouse and Atomic Monster will be teaming up with Canadian gaming giant Behaviour Interactive to make this vision reality – and James Wan had the following to say about the partnership:

“In ‘Dead by Daylight’ the Behaviour team has created a love letter to the world of horror, building an incredible environment teeming with atmosphere and terrifying villains — perfect for a scary cinematic adaptation. We’re big fans of the game at Atomic Monster, and are thrilled to be teaming up with Blumhouse to bring this frighteningly visceral world to the big screen.”

The search is on for a director – and here’s hoping they land someone quickly and that this one gets into production soon.
