John Carpenter interested in “Dead Space” film?

May 9, 2013

Horror movie legend John Carpenter, (The Thing, Halloween, Big Trouble In Little China) has expressed interest in bringing EA’s Dead Space series to the big screen.

The Dead Space franchise already extends beyond the three video games into novels, comic books and animated feature films. Carpenter acknowledged the obvious comparison to the Alien franchise, but also expressed that there’s still legitimate potential in the story of Dead Space.

“I would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I’ll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made. You know it’s great. The first game was more – I guess it was like Alien – but not quite. It was a little different than that. I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something’s on board. It’s just great stuff.”

I wasn’t aware that the 65 year old Carpenter played video games?  Either way, I’d be happy if Carpenter got back in the director’s chair and hit a home run.
