We Happy Few Gets A Movie Adaptation Despite Still Being In Early Access

Gold Circle Entertainment (Pitch Perfect), and developer Compulsion Games are working together to bring survival game We Happy Few to the silver screen, according to Variety.

Set in an dystopian 1960s English city, We Happy Few is the tale of a group of slightly bad people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial.

Complusion Games is partnering with dj2 Entertainment for the film, with the latter's CEO Dmitri M. Johnson and Chief Content Officer Dan Jevons producing the protect, Stephan Bugaj being the executive producer.

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".


There is no estimated release date for the movie, but it's clear the studio has its sights set on adapting and developing some well known and interesting video game properties. Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you'll have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who don't take kindly to people who don't abide by their not-so-normal rules.

Gold Circle and dj2 are now out to writers for the project.

Dj2 is also producing adaptations based on Sleeping Dogs and Sonic the Hedgehog.

We Happy Few isn't even out of Early Access yet but is already generating quite a bit of buzz.
