Dead Space Movie In Development, According to John Carpenter
John Carpenter, legendary film director, may have inadvertently leaked the development of a Dead Space movie. In something that could almost be described as a throwaway comment in an interview, Carpenter made a statement that, if read the right way, directly suggests such a project exists.
Carpenter, whose works include the likes of The Fog, Halloween, and Escape From New York, is an Academy Award-winning director. He’d be perfectly placed to work on a film based on one of the most horrific franchises in gaming, but according to him, he certainly isn’t up to directing it.
But someone else is.
Is A Dead Space Movie On The Way?
Recently, there has been so much news regarding live-action adaptations of top-tier gaming franchises. We’ve covered so many of them that we may as well put together something of a quick repository for you:
The latest title to join the list of potential franchises being made into a movie is Dead Space, which is a concept that has been floating around for years. It’s the perfect setting for a horror movie, and according to John Carpenter, it’s in development as we speak.
In an interview with Variety, when asked if there’s any movement on Carpenter directing a possible Dead Space movie, the man himself said:
I’m not gonna do it. I think they already have another director involved. And they haven’t asked me to do it. So, until someone asks me, I wouldn’t do it. But there’s a new version of the Dead Space video game coming out in January, and I’m there
So, John Carpenter, legendary director, plugged into the inner workings of Hollywood, believes that there’s a director involved with a Dead Space movie. It’s time to discuss taking something this with a pinch of salt, but if that statement is to be believed, it could mean that a grisly, gory horror film is on the horizon, and its name is Dead Space.
