Dead by Daylight is an online survival horror game that has previously licensed characters from horror franchises including A Nightmare on Elm Street and Hellraiser. In March, Blumhouse and Atomic Monster announced that they were teaming with Behaviour Interactive to develop a film adaptation of it.

Cage is a well-known horror buff whose previous onscreen genre credits include Vampire's Kiss, Mandy, Color Out of Space, the remake of The Wicker Man, and Willy's Wonderland. Most recently, the actor played Count Dracula in this year's Renfield opposite Nicholas Hoult's titular familiar.

His other upcoming projects include the sequel Lords of War and the psychological horror film Sympathy for the Devil (out July 28), which co-stars Joel Kinnaman.
