I did not know they were remaking TV’s Fantasy Island with a horror twist for the big screen….
Well, I do now.
Ant-Man scene-stealer and Cesar Chavez star Michael Peña leads a young ensemble cast as the enigmatic Mr. Roarke in this iteration of the franchise directed by Jeff Wadlow, the man behind Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare (this joint also is a Blumhouse production, btw). In this version, Mr. Roarke still makes the secret dreams of his lucky guests come true…and come to all-too-scary life…at a luxurious but remote tropical resort, and it’s all fun and games until it’s not. Until the guests’ fantasies turn into nightmares, and each has to solve whatever confronting mystery the island holds for them, if they want to get off it and escape it with their lives.
Austin Stowell (Whiplash), Lucy Hale, Maggie Q, Portia Doubleday (USA Network’s Mr. Robot), Jimmy O. Yang (Crazy Rich Asians), and Michael Roorke (Guardians of the Galaxy) co-star.
Fantasy Island is set to open on Feb. 14. Don’t forget to RSVP.
