DEAD BY DAYLIGHT Movie In the Works from Blumhouse, Atomic Monster and Behaviour Interactive

Dead By Daylight Movie Adaptation

Fans of the asymmetric multiplayer survival horror online game "Dead by Daylight" will be overjoyed to hear that a movie adaptation is coming. Behaviour Interactive has teamed with James Wan's Atomic Monster and Blumhouse to develop a feature film based on the popular video game, which has reached over 50 million players worldwide. The search for a director and screenwriter is underway.

Stephen Mulrooney, executive vice president at Behaviour Interactive said the following:
"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."
Atomic Monster Founder and CEO James Wan added:
"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.".
Jason Blum, Blumhouse Founder and CEO had this to say about the project:
"We know there are so many fans of ‘Dead by Daylight’ out there and think it’s imperative we find someone who appreciates and loves the world as much as we do, to help us bring the game to the big screen. We know our partners at Behaviour and Atomic Monster will help us bring the best version of this game to life.".
Producers include James Wan, Jason Blum, and Stephen Mulrooney. Executive Producers include Behaviour Interactive's Rémi Racine, Atomic Monster's Michael Clear and Judson Scott, Blumhouse's Ryan Turek, and Striker Entertainment's Russell Binder.

Blumhouse and Atomic Monster will merge sometime in the summer. The deal was announced last year. Blumhouse also announced the launch of Blumhouse Games, a new subsidiary that will produce and publish "indie budget" video games for below $10 million.
