Shocktillyoudrop.com did an interview with the director who is making the Monster Island movie.

Here is what was said about the Monster Island movie: "We also asked for a progress report on Monster Island, an epic zombie movie that Susco has been producing from another novel (of sorts). "'Monster Island' is a book that I optioned by this author named David Wellington which is pretty good. He wrote a book online and published it chapter by chapter without going back to revising it as he put the chapters online. What I'm trying to do with my producing partner is say, 'Let's do something different for a zombie movie. Let's not do a ten million dollar, five people trapped somewhere, really low-budget zombie movie. Let's spend ninety million dollars and do the '300' version of it and do the zombie movie nobody's ever seen before which is a dozen people on Manhattan island fighting forty million zombies. Let's do a huge version of it. It's a lot to ask from a studio so we're kind of developing it a little bit on the quiet side and trying to figure out the best way to sort of show people what the potential is."
