We Happy Few movie adaptation is in the works

Compulsion Games’ dystopian survival game We Happy Few isn’t even technically finished and yet it has already been optioned for a movie.

The initial announcement of the movie adaptation came courtesy of Variety and Compulsion Games later confirmed it via Twitter, saying that the movie is still a long ways off and that the game will be finished long before the movie is released. Because of Compulsion’s tweet, it probably isn’t too surprising to hear that the movie adaptation doesn’t yet have a director or writers, though the movie’s producers do promise it will stick close to the game’s source material.

The We Happy Few movie adaptation is being produced jointly by Gold Circle Entertainment (the same production company behind the Pitch Perfect film series) and dj2 Entertainment (the studio that’s behind the recently announced Donnie Yen-starring Sleeping Dogs movie adaptation).
