John Carpenter suggests a Dead Space movie is in development
Legendary film director John Carpenter has hinted that a Dead Space film project is currently in development.
The Halloween boss has previously spoken of his interest in making a Dead Space movie – and has now said a project to bring the survival horror franchise to the big screen is now underway, though not connected to him.
“I’m a huge video game fan, so I’ve played all the games,” Carpenter said diversity. “I was looking at the new digital cameras, the RED, and happened to tell them I’d like to do a Dead Space movie. It just went around and everyone was like, ‘Oh, when are you doing this? ‘”
“I think they’ve already got another director involved,” Carpenter continued. “And they didn’t ask me to. So I wouldn’t do it until someone asked me.”
So far, Dead Space publisher EA has not announced any official plans for a film adaptation of the franchise. We have asked for an opinion.
Regardless of Dead Space’s movie prospects, the franchise’s resurgence with a remake of its original entry is just a few weeks away — and Carpenter is excited about that, too.
“There’s a new version of the Dead Space video game coming out in January, and I’m in,” he said.
