No I don't think so, sorry. Just because APG is coming out a little after Harper's Island does not mean they are one in the same. Both have been in production for quite some time. I'm pretty sure in APG, the killers are known right off the bat. Timothy Olyphant is one of them.

stop spoling us and do u always have to disagree with us?

I was not aware I was required to agree with you. You posted a forum in a public spot, I saw it so I'm going to answer. Plus, it's not as if Harper's Island is extremely original in itself.

Plus

Writer/director David Twohy presents A Perfect Getaway -- an action thriller focusing on two newlyweds (Milla Jovovich and Steve Zahn) who come across a couple of sinister hikers, played by Timothy Olyphant and Kiele Sanchez. - Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide

It's not a spoiler if it is in the official synopsis.

Don't make such a big deal about it.
Island murders are not new.
If anything, Harper's Island would be sued.
I'm not saying it should, but eh.

07th Expansion's Umineko no Naku Koro ni (created in 2007 if I'm not mistaken) is an example of this. A rich family gathers to a private island for the first time in 6~7 years to discuss inheritance business. Then, they start getting picked off one by one in very bloody, very confusing ways.

Agatha Christie's novel And Then There Were None (published in 1939) is another example.
I'm too lazy to type something, so here's the link:

I could say more, but I think I've proved a point. So, really, A Perfect Getaway is just following a long history of stories of murders on a secluded island. Coincidence, people. Get over it.

The producer says Harper's island is based of a Story itself.

I saw A Perfect Getaway last week and yes the summary and trailers sound like a copycat of Harper's island but its actually really different! And it has a really interesting plot. I would recommend to go see it, even if its kinda slow at first.

It's a slasher just like the idea behind Harper's so of course it sounds similar.
PS: I saw it and I think it was a crappy movie, but not especially crappy, just average degree of crappiness ;)
