Sony Pictures has debuted the first trailer for Blumhouse’s re-imagining of the classic series Fantasy Island.
The Enigmatic Mr. Roarke (played by Michael Peña) makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true at a luxurious but remote tropical resort. But when the fantasies turn into nightmares, the guests have to solve the island’s mystery in order to escape with their lives.
It will also star Lucy Hale (Truth or Dare), Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley), Charlotte McKinney (Flatliners, Baywatch), Parisa Fitz-Henley (Luke Cage, Jessica Jones), Austin Stowell (Catch 22), Maggie Q (Divergent film franchise), Portia Doubleday (Carrie), and Ryan Hansen (Friday the 13th).
Fantasy Island was a fan-favorite during its original run on the small screen. The island drama dealt with dark themes and the supernatural with a little bit of cheesiness as visitors would come to the island to live out their fantasies. Guests could request any fantasy on the unique resort island in the Pacific Ocean, overseen by the mysterious Mr. Roarke and Hervé Villechaize’s Tattoo, but those fantasies rarely turned out as expected as visitors found themselves facing challenges that tested their character.
Jeff Wadlow will direct the big-screen adaptation from a script he is writing with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs.
