Dead Space Movie Gets Director
Eagle Eye director D.J. Caruso is set to hit the director’s chair for the big screen adaptation of the Electronic Arts hit, Dead Space. There is no script as of this time, but the films producers and EA hope to have a writer and concept set by September so they can begin to hunt out a buying studio.
“‘Dead Space’ becomes the fifth EA title to percolate as a feature property. Aside from the “Dante’s Inferno” film that will be produced by Strike Entertainment partners Eric Newman and Marc Abraham, EA is in business with Universal on “Army of Two,” with Scott Z. Burns (“The Bourne Ultimatum”) scripting and Scott Stuber producing. EA’s “The Sims” is being developed by producer John Davis and “Mass Effect” by “Spider-Man” producer Avi Arad.”
It’s hard for me to look forward to films taken from video games, due to the history of their quality, but I’m going to put my hopes in this one. The team that will put this movie together should take some heavy notes on the visuals EA used, which made Dead Space such a complete enjoyment. (Read our Dead Space review HERE)
