'Fantasy Island' Movie in the Works at Blumhouse
Fantasy Island is coming to the big screen.
Blumhouse and Sony will co-finance and co-produce a feature based on the popular ABC TV series about a magical, wish-fulfilling island that would attract travelers hoping to live out their wildest fantasies.
Jeff Wadlow, who worked with Blumhouse on the recent release Truth or Dare, is attached to direct from a script he is writing with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs. Wadlow also will executive produce along with Blumhouse’s Couper Samuelson. Ryan Turek will oversee for Blumhouse and Matt Milam will oversee for Sony.
Wadlow, who also directed Kick Ass 2, is repped by UTA, Artists First and Hirsch Wallerstein
