Until Dawn, the interactive horror hit from Supermassive Games, is officially getting a movie adaptation, according to a new report from The Hollywood Reporter.

Filmmaker David F. Sandberg will direct the adaptation. Audiences will likely recognize Sandberg for their DCEU Shazam films.

However, Sandberg is also known for horror movies like Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation.

Sandberg worked with Gary Dauberman on the latter. Now, he’ll collaborate with Dauberman again for the Until Dawn adaptation. Dauberman is writing the latest iteration of the screenplay.

The adaptation will involve both Screen Gems and PlayStation Productions.

The original Annabelle movie had some very mixed reviews. But horror fans widely accepted the sequel Annabelle: Creation as a vast improvement.

Lights Out is also something of an underrated gem, with some inventive jumps and fun elaborations on Sandberg’s own short film. So, Sandberg and Dauberman might be an ideal team for Until Dawn.

Supermassive Games is renowned for developing narrative horror games, driven by player decisions and intense consequences. These choices can test morals and completely alter story outcomes.

Besides Until Dawn, fans will best recognize Supermassive Games for The Dark Pictures anthology and The Quarry.

Until Dawn is cinematic to begin with, featuring lots of lore and memorable performances. It even includes some Hollywood actors like Hayden Panettiere, Rami Malek, and Peter Stormare.

It should be relatively easy to adapt into a full-length feature film.

At this time, it’s unclear if any of the original game’s cast will return for the movie adaptation.

Until Dawn originally launched nearly a decade ago in 2015. It remains a horror classic about young adults trying to survive mysterious threats at an isolated ski lodge in Blackwood Mountain.
