Movie adaptations of video games isn't a new trend, and We Happy Few is the next to earn its own adaptation.
A movie based on the videogame "We Happy Few" is in the works with "Pitch Perfect" producer Gold Circle Entertainment, Variety has learned exclusively. The film will be produced by Paul Brooks of Gold Circle Films and DJ2 Entertainment's Dmitri M. Johnson and Dan Jevons, with DJ2's Stephan Bugaj on tap to serve as executive producer.
"We Happy Few" is set in an eerie and isolated English town during an alternate-1960s, where the government has imposed a drug-induced happiness to mask gruesome violence and hide a nefarious mystery. Developer Compulsion Games has partnered with studio dj2 for the movie.
Syndergaard, Cabrera lead Mets past Braves 6-0 in opener
Fernando Salas came in to pitch the eighth and retired the Braves in order. "It feels like an older brother to me, kind of". Perhaps that will change beginning Monday when the Mets host the Braves in the season opener for both teams at Citi Field.
The film reportedly remains "true to the source material, while still surprising fans" and will retain the game's "menace, dark humor, and central themes". The video game developer will be working with Gold Circle Entertainment as well as dj2 Entertainment.
However, what's also true is that the game itself now lacks much in the way of satisfactory conclusion, so the film will either have to conjure one up for itself or else tap into the developer's future plans.
If you're interested in getting more into We Happy Few, the game is available on the Xbox One Game Preview Program and Steam for $29.99.
