Dave Bautista To Join FANTASY ISLAND which is Described as WESTWORLD Meets THE CABIN IN THE WOODS
Dave Bautista is in negotiations to join the upcoming film adaptation of the classic TV series Fantasy Island. He will join Michael Peña, who is talking on the role of the iconic character Mr. Roarke.
The movie is described as being a “tonal mix of Westworld meets The Cabin in the Woods, centering on a group of contest winners who arrive at an island hotel to live out their dreams, only to find themselves trapped in nightmare scenarios. “
If the deal closes, Bautista will play “a former guest who is still on the island against his will and who wants to expose Roarke and the island’s magical secrets.”
This could actually make for a good movie! The studio is bring together a solid cast and it’s being directed by Jeff Wadlow. He previously directed Truth or Dare for Blumhouse, which is the studio producing Fantasy Island.
Blumhouse has been having a great run with horror movies the past few years and from the sound of it, Fantasy Island could be end up being more of a horror film, which would be fun.
Dave Bautista recently expressed interest in joining James Gunn’s Suicide Squad 2 and if he does, I hope he plays King Shark!
