Remember back during the dog days of February
when the Internet did a collective back-flip over the trailer for 'Dead Island,' a zombie video game that Deep Silver recently released? It turns out rumors of a possible big-screen version were true: Lionsgate has acquired the film rights for 'Dead Island.' The game has already sold 2 million units since coming out earlier this month. No word yet on stars or director but original game producer Sean Daniel will produce with Stefan Sonnenfeld. For a refresher course on why this is pretty cool news, watch the viral trailer for 'Dead Island' ahead.
