Could John Carpenter Adapt A DEAD SPACE Movie?
Legendary film-maker John Carpenter, the man behind The Thing, has expressed interest in helming a live-action adaptation of Electronic Arts video game, Dead Space. Do you think the 65-year-old filmmaker would be a good fit?
Horror movie legend John Carpenter, the man behind of some of the most iconic horror films of all time including The Thing, Halloween and [we'll even throw in there] 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 is seemingly ripe with movie making potential. 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 would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made."
