D.J. Caruso to direct 'Dead Space'

The Electronic Arts hit vidgame "Dead Space" is on course to become a sci-fi/horror film, with "Eagle Eye" helmer D.J. Caruso attached to direct.

EA will produce the film with Temple Hill partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.

The producers, EA and Caruso have been listening to takes from prospective screenwriters, and once they set a writer and EA signs off on a creative direction, they will auction the property to studios. That will likely happen in early September.

looks like a good movie game

El_Colombiano3835d ago

This works. Although the game itself was very cinematic indeed!

Jaces3835d ago

Swear to God this better not be another DOOM.

The movie would be amazing if done right, one can only hope.

aldesko3835d ago

No, it will just be another Resident Evil =(

Dead Space is based from the movie Event Horizon !!!
they want to make a movie out-from a videogame wich is based from another movie???
that's lame....

Lionsguard3835d ago

Deadspace and Event Horizon have nothing to do with each other. Event Horizon has one guy trying to open a gate to hell, Deadspace is a mining ship overrun by unknown alien zombie things. YEA real similar..Might as well have compared it to starship troopers or starwars.

This could be the next "Aliens". I certainly hope they don't cheese this one up and instead make it awesome and gritty realistic. I loved the game and would hate for anyone to ruin the feel of the game in a silly movie adaptation.

hatchimatchi3835d ago

another thing that differentiates dead space from event horizon is the fact that event horizon for the most part is pure crap. It started off great but paul anderson can direct himself out of a paper bag and thus, ruined the film.

Dead space could be an awesome horror sci-fi movie. Horror and Sci-fi are my favorite genres, hopefully this exceeds my expectations.

This might actually make a pretty decent movie. The game had a horror movie feel to it like Alien or Event Horizon anyway. I hope it's as gory as the game.

Max Power3835d ago

make a animated movie, a prequel I believe.

Sangria3835d ago

Yes, Dead Space : Downfall, explaining what happened just before the game. But honestly, the animation sucked. It's only interesting on a scenario point of view, otherwise it was really lame.

Admiral_Benson3835d ago

Did anyone else check out the Dead Space animated comic series on the PSN?

Not bad, i enjoyed them more than DS: Downfall.

hatchimatchi3835d ago

yea, dead space downfall is one of the worst purchases i've ever made.

Animation looked like something off cartoon network and it really didn't do anything for the series as a whole. I like many others were suckered into buying it, and on blu-ray no less.

ShinFuYux3835d ago

But it had a sucky ending.

I hope they capture the whole "surprise" horror and dramatic music. Those were the two main elements that made this game,,,,,a master piece.
