    Your thoughts on this movie......

    The story will follow a group of guests who are warned by the island’s overseer, Mr. Roarke, that their fantasies may not play out how they expect.







    Back to the original series.......

    Michael Pena (“Ant-Man,” “Narcos”) has been set to star as Mr. Roarke, the character made famous by Ricardo Montalban, in a new film adaptation of the popular ABC series “Fantasy Island” set up at Blumhouse Productions and Sony Pictures.

    Like the series, the action is set on a magical, wish-fulfilling island. The story will follow a group of guests who are warned by the island’s overseer, Mr. Roarke, that their fantasies may not play out how they expect.

    Jeff Wadlow (“Kick Ass 2,” “Truth or Dare”) is attached to direct from a script by Wadlow, Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs. Couper Samuelson will executive produce.

    “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista is in negotiations to join the cast of the big-screen reimagining of classic 1970s TV series “Fantasy Island” at Sony and Blumhouse.

    The story centers on a group of contest winners who arrive at an island hotel to live out their greatest fantasies, only to find themselves trapped in nightmare scenarios. The new film is said to have a tone described as “Westworld” meets “Cabin in the Woods”

    Michael Pena is set to star as the island’s host Mister Roarke. Bautista will play a former guest who is still on the island against his will and wants to expose Roarke.

    Jimmy O. Yang (“Crazy Rich Asians”) also stars. Jeff Wadlow (“Truth or Dare”) is attached to direct from a script he is writing with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs.
