The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Dave Bautista has joined the cast of Sony and Blumhouse’s Fantasy Island, a film version of the 1977-84 TV series. The film will be directed by Jeff Wadlow from a script he wrote with Chris Roach and Jillian Jacobs. It stars Michael Pena as Mister Roarke and Jimmy O. Yang as one of the island’s guests. Bautista will play a former guest who is on the island against his will and wants to expose its secrets.

The film is being compared to “Westworld meets The Cabin in the Woods” in tone. It follows a group of contest winners who are allowed to live out their fantasies on the island, only to discover things aren’t what they seem.
