"‘Fantasy Island’ Film On Tap For Blumhouse"

Deadline:

The instinct is to recall the series as being a bit cheesy, propelled by the Fantasy Island opening where Herve Villechaize’s Tattoo would beckon the island overseer Mr Roarke (Ricardo Montalban) with cries of ‘Boss, de plane, de plane.’ But the series actually dealt with dark themes and the supernatural as visitors come to the island to live out their fantasy wishes, which puts it right in the Blumhouse wheelhouse.
