We Happy Few is getting a movie adaptation

After Microsoft showed a demo of the zany game at E3 2016, We Happy Few went viral on social media, and it turned out to be the highest-rated game from the Microsoft E3 press event.

The film is being produced by Gold Circle Films and dj2 Entertainment - the latter of which is also executive producing a TV adaptation of Dontnod's Life Is Strange, and a Sleeping Dogs feature film starring Donnie Yen.

It doesn't sound like the project is very far along at present. Variety reported today that We Happy Few is going to get a movie adaptation.

Compulsion Games has partnered with dj2 Entertainment to make the movie.

Dj2 is now executive producing Life Is Strange, a television series based on the videogame, with Legendary Entertainment, producing the Sleeping Dogs feature film with Original Film and Donnie Yen (Star Wars, IP Man) attached to star, as well as co-producing the Sonic, the Hedgehog motion picture.

"Our commitment is to make a movie that remains true to the source material, while still surprising fans", Johnson said.

Besides, the best aspects of We Happy Few seem to be tailor-made for a film. Video game movies often fall flat because they can't measure up to the memories players hold dear from when they first experienced Doom or Assassin's Creed or World of Warcraft or Street Fighter or [insert literally any game that's good but movie that's bad here].
