It looks like the popular horror game Dead by Daylight is making its way to Hollywood, as Atomic Monster and Blumhouse are set to team up with Behaviour Interactive and bring the multiplayer game to the silver screen. It’s no wonder given just how big the game became after starting in 2016, it has grown to a player base of 50M worldwide. The interactive elements of trying to survive with friends against original and even some familiar monsters offer a unique appeal.
Executive Vice President of Behaviour Interactive, Stephen Mulrooney, shares his excitement bout the new partnership and the chance to bring Dead by Daylight to the silver screen.
We couldn’t be more thrilled to work with Jason Blum and James Wan, two giants of the horror film industry, to further expand the ‘Dead by Daylight’ universe. At Behaviour, our motto is to create unique moments, together, forever. Atomic Monster and Blumhouse are the ideal partners to craft ‘Dead by Daylight’s’ killer entrance onto the big screen.Stephen Mulrooney
Horror veteran and CEO of Atomic Monster, James Wan, shared his thoughts and excitement to tackle this unique environment of The Fog.
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.James Wan
As of now, the project has no screenwriter or director attached. So, while they are moving forward with the project, they haven’t quite found the talent that’ll bring it to life. Here’s hoping they find a horror veteran that can bring that classic slasher feeling to the game. This also marks the second major gaming adaptation for Blumhouse, who are actively working on an adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy’s film.
