Hardcore Henry director Timur Bekmambetov is set to adapt Julian Terry’s Animal Crossing horror short ‘Don’t Peek’ into a full-length feature film.
According to Deadline, Bekmambetov, who directed Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will take the reins on the feature film adaptation of Don’t Peek, which will see Majd Nassif serving as a producer under Bekmambetov’s production banner Bazelevs. Creative executive Pavel Bozhkov is also onboard to oversee the project.
Don’t Peek made its official world premiere on March 15, the first day of SXSW Online, after a small team of people created the film using a Blackmagic pocket camera during quarantine last year. The story follows a young woman, played by Katie Cetta, who “discovers a frightening video game character intent on crossing into the real world.”
It’s fair to say that after you’ve watched it, you may think twice about playing Animal Crossing late at night. However, if you’re feeling brave enough, then you might want to turn your attention to New Horizons, a game that IGN called an “expanded, polished, next-generation reboot,” where you can escape to a deserted island and explore, create, and customize your very own paradise.
There’s plenty to do in paradise but if you’re stuck for ideas, then you may want to check whether you have collected all of K.K. Slider’s songs or see how many Sanrio items you’ve spotted in the game. If the Sanrio collaboration isn’t your thing, perhaps you’d like to take a look at the Mario-themed items that you can buy to possibly share your own Mushroom Kingdom creation with the community.
