D.J. Caruso to direct game-to-film adaptation.
Dead Space is expanding into a trilogy and will also be making the move to the silver screen, with director D.J Caruso slated to direct an adaptation based on EA's well-received sci-fi horror game.
EA has previously spoken of expanding Dead Space beyond the first game -- which saw Isaac Clarke exploring the desecrated innards of the mining ship Ishimura – as well as expressing a desire to see the IP make the leap to the big screen. The first game did well at review, and has already spawned Dead Space: Extraction a Wii spin-off that's coming later this year.
News of a movie spin-off should come as no surprise; the game is already brimming with cinematic influences, and its release was accompanied by Dead Space Downfall, a full-length animated film.
Variety reports that a second and third game are in the works, while naming D.J. Caruso as the director for the movie. Caruso directed Shia LaBeouf vehicles Disturbia and Eagle Eye – so can we expect to see The Beef taking on the Necromorphs in the forthcoming film?
I think this will be good. Have you played Dead Space ? If you havent, please do ! Its an awesome sci-fi horror game.
