‘Until Dawn’ Video Game Movie Coming From ‘Annabelle: Creation’ Director

Following the video game-to-movie adaptations trend, a movie based on the popular horror game Until Dawn is in development from the director and writer duo behind Annabelle: Creation. David F. Sandberg (Shazam!) will be directing the Until Dawn movie, with Gary Dauberman(It) serving as scriptwriter. Dauberman will work off an earlier version of the script by The Invitation writer Blair Butler.

Until Dawn, which was released in 2015 on the PlayStation 4, is an interactive horror game that follows eight friends who spend the weekend in a ski lodge on the anniversary of their friends’ disappearance, unaware that they are not alone, and must face terrifying new horrors in a desperate fight for survival. The game has gone on to be nominated for several awards and has a large fanbase.

There’s plenty of material to work off the game, with a large ensemble cast and monsters lurking in the mountains. Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions are attached to the project, with Screen Gems teasing the movie to be an “R-rated love letter to the horror genre, centering on an ensemble cast.”

While the game featured the voice and motion capture talents of Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody’), Peter Stormare (Constantine) and Hayden Panettiere (Heroes), it’s unlikely that the stars will return for the film. Still, we’re excited to see what’s in store for the Until Dawn movie, so stay tuned for more updates and casting details!
