D.J. Caruso to direct ‘Dead Space’ Film!!!
More Science Fiction is a damn good thing!!!
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, Variety reports:
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.
The last EA property to follow that course was “Dante’s Inferno” — a journey through the depths of hell; Universal made the deal after a four-studio bidding battle.
“Dead Space” is set in the 26th century in deep space, where an engineer who responds to a distress signal from a mining ship finds the vessel infested with monstrous creatures called Necromorphs. The creatures are human corpses, reanimated by an alien virus.
EA launched the game in 2008 and is working on the second and third installments.
