Avatar Films and Sekretagent Productions have optioned the movie rights to the sci-fi survival horror game Cold Fear from developer Darkworks and Ubisoft, Variety reported. Cold Fear didn’t sell well to gamers, but producers feel the scary atmosphere and story, will translate well as a horror film. The producers of the upcoming film are looking to attach a director before approaching film studios.
Storyline of the Cold Fear game:
