We Happy Few will have a film adaptation. The project was just announced only and production has yet to begin. Serving as producers for the film adaptation to We Happy Few are:

We Happy Few is the tale of a plucky bunch of moderately terrible people trying to escape from a lifetime of cheerful denial. Set in a drug-fuelled, retrofuturistic city in an alternative 1960s England, you’ll have to blend in with its other inhabitants, who have their own set of not-so-normal rules.

Todd McFarlane Toy Action Figure Line
We Happy Few will also have merchandise coming soon. Striker Entertainment will be the worldwide licensing agency. McFarlane action figures and construction sets are in the works. Gold Label for print-on-demand soft goods.
We Happy Few sounds like a very intriguing concept. The Maindenholm update video shows as a dark whimsical world. Even the official gameplay trailer starts out a little intense.
I think the gameplay is enticing, and the film adaptation should be done in the same form. Animation and all. I think it would capture the essence of the whole concept, rather than make it a live action film.
Also, more filmmakers are turning the spotlight towards animated films. Using FX effects rather than CGI, this is a great time to explore and expand video games even more. On the same token, We Happy Few looks like it will go great both ways, as the graphics look amazing as they are. CGI might even enhance the film.
