Fantasy Island is an upcoming 2020 American fantasy supernatural horror film directed by Jeff Wadlow and written by Jillian Jacobs, Chris Roach, and Wadlow, based on ABC's 1977 television series of the same name created by Gene Levitt. It stars Michael Peña, Maggie Q, Lucy Hale, Austin Stowell, Portia Doubleday, Jimmy O. Yang, Ryan Hansen, and Michael Rooker. Jason Blum produces the film through his Blumhouse Productions banner and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.
The enigmatic Mr. Roarke (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 was announced in July 2018 that a film adaptation of the Fantasy Island television series was being developed at Blumhouse Productions and Sony Pictures, with it being described as a mix of Westworld and The Cabin in the Woods. Jeff Wadlow was set to direct, as well as co-write the screenplay.
As of February 19, 2020, Fantasy Island has grossed $15.4 million in the United States and Canada, and $7.7 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $23.1 million. In the United States and Canada, the film was released alongside Sonic the Hedgehog, The Photograph and Downhill, and was projected to gross $13–20 million from 2,770 theaters in its four-day President's Day opening weekend. It made $5.7 million on its first day, and went on to debut to $12.6 million for its first three days, and a total $14 million over four, finishing third at the box office.
