We Happy Few To Become A Movie

We Happy Few To Become A Movie

We Happy Few has none of that going for it because it's not even a complete dang game yet. The single-player game is coming out on the PC and the Xbox One.

As reported by Variety, Compulsion has partnered with Pitch Perfect Producer Gold Circle Entertainment and dj2 Entertainment (producer of the recently announced Sleeping Dogs movie) to bring the game to the big screen.

Dj2 is also now working on Sleeping Dogs and Sonic the Hedgehog films.

NORC Poll: Most disapprove of Trump, except on economy
But with Trump in the White House, Milton is so disappointed that she said she would take former President George W. More than three-quarters of Democrats favor an independent investigation while only one-quarter of Republicans do.

Rafael Nadal reaches Key Biscayne final for 5th time
The crowd chanted Fognini's first name in an attempt to get the Italian going, and flying footwear did the job. But the world number 40 struggled after a poor start against Nadal, who did not face a single break point.

Trump says he expects a health care deal soon
Ronald Reagan was known to say that he would happily take 70 or 80 percent of what he wanted and come back for the rest later. The GOP House has too many members who are like Trump was 2016, when he acted as a Caucus of One.

Compulsion Games' Guillaume Provost said the film companies came to the developer "with really solid ideas about how to adapt our game to film while retaining its menace, dark humor, and central themes".

Some have already voiced their surprise that a game that has yet to exit its Early Access period could be considered for a film adaptation, but there's no arguing that We Happy Few's premise is immediately alluring and seemingly ripe for a movie spin-off. We still don't know how We Happy Few will turn out as a video game, and for that reason it probably stands a better chance at being a decent movie.

Dj2 CEO Dmitri Johnson also states that the studio's goal is to remain true to the game's source material. We'll have to take a wait-and-see approach on whether the game's premise will break the legacy of video game film adaptations, but it certainly sounds like an intriguing prospect.
