Maxim Locke was a secondary antagonist that was supposed to appear in the September 2017 draft of the Dead Island film. He was the snobby son of Jonathan Locke, the owner of the Royal Palms Resort and surrounding Resort area.

He was to first be met by Tynan as he is trying to chat up and impress Jerrika at an outside bar. Upon seeing Maxim in the distance with his friends, he decides to make fun of him to Jerrika, including alluding to Maxim having a 'Micropenis'. Jerrika leaves, unimpressed, to be revealed to be Maxim's girlfriend, and upon telling Maxim what Tynan had said, he storms over with his friends and confronts him. However, despite Jerrika nearly diffusing the situation, Tynan continues to antagonise him and after making fun of his hair, Maxim punches him and a fight occurs with Si joining in. A Resort supervisor sees the two fighting and fires them, to the gloating of Maxim.

He was then not to be encountered again until much later, around a month after the outbreak when Si and Tynan are with other survivors in the hotel, which they have barricaded. During a storm, Maxim and Jerrika arrive at the hotel with Jonathan and Elwood. They discover stolen goods and graffiti in the foyer, and the survivors having a karaoke night in a rec room. When Jonathan threatens to have Tynan shot after being disrespectful towards him, Maxim stops Jerrika from interfering with Jonathans assault on the survivors. Eventually, Cassie makes a deal with the four that they get the penthouse of the hotel whilst the other survivors live in the lower levels, as well as clean up their messes.

He was then to be seen the next day eating an apple with Jonathan and Elwood as they pass by Tynan and Asher cleaning up graffiti. After belittling them, Maxim throws the apple at a clean bit of wall before walking off, laughing. He remains in the upper levels until the survivors get a contact from Dr. Kessler on a radio that Asher fixed up. Upon hearing that Asher is immune, he shares a look with Jonathan and is interested in his plan to kidnap Asher and take him to Kessler themselves, so they can potentially profit off any cure made with his blood.

That night, after Jonathan has made Tynan drunk to knock him out, as he was on guard duty, Maxim accompanies his father, Elwood and Jerrika to kidnap Asher, silencing Jerrika when she protests about how it's not right to kidnap him. After stealing in the hotel survivors modified ice cream van with Asher to head to Kessler, when Asher speaks up after his gag is removed to have a drink, Maxim angrily tells him to shut up or his gag is put back on. He survives the crash when the van looses traction after running over a zombie and he pulls Asher from the crash, acting as his guard. Upon reaching the lab, Maxim is bored, playing with lab equipment and accidentally destroys a beaker, deliberately smashing another when Kessler tells him to sit down. Later he accidentally inhales a substance and, when coughing, gets it over his face. When he asks Dr. Kessler about it, he responds that it's ‘psilocybin', derived from magic mushrooms. Maxim is drugged out and starts to hallucinate, speaking gibberish as he is heavily influenced by the psychedelic. When he appears next to Jerrika when she's about to secretly open the door to allow Cassie and Tynan in, who followed them, he looks like he's going to tell on her but is still heavily drugged out. When the survivors burst in, along with Infected, Jonathan manages to grab him and run with the single cure that Kessler developed before he is infected by the zombies.

After escaping from the lab, when Jonathan is attacked and infected by Elwood, whom he left to die in the van crash, he tells Maxim to get him the cure but Maxim, still heavily drugged, leaves him. He is met by Asher and Jerrika at the dock when they're fixing the boat, with Maxim bursting out of the water and killing Jerrika with a fishing spear, who he thought was a zombie from his hallucinations. After pushing Asher into the water for the same reason, he steals the boat and heads out to sea, where he sees the zombies in the water as a load of clowns. Asher catches up with the help of Dolphin Ludgren and regains control of the boat after pushing Maxim into the water. He is killed when his man bun is caught by the suck of the propeller of the boat and drags him into the propeller, breaking his skull, unbeknownst to Asher.
