It looks like Techland wants to get on the transmedia train with their hit first-person, zombie survival game Dying Light. The developer has confirmed that a film adaptation is in the works, and one fan can get in on the act. There hasn’t really been a truly exceptional video game-to-film adaptation. In fact, most of them are downright dreadful. But that hasn’t kept studios from trying or from licensing the video game properties to develop into motion pictures. It looks like Dying Light: The Movie is the next one in line. Techland is partnering with Game UK for a player to get a role in the upcoming film. However, that means someone has to spend $10 million on the Spotlight Edition of the game. You can check out the full breakdown of the Spotlight Edition for Dying Light in the image below.
