Video Game Adaptation of “Dead Space” to be a Prequel
Some tidbits about where the movie version of “Dead Space” is at. Read the whole article here.
From the article it looks like they are just in the “Kicking ideas around” phase. Which means it’s still a longshot if this movie will ever get made. I don’t know if I like the idea of a Prequel…. I hate those. You already know what’s going to happen. It saps the energy from a movie.
But I’m at least heartened that those involved seem to have enthusiasm for the video game. I guess I’ll cross my fingers and see what happens.
Director DJ Caruso, who is presently helming an adaptation of the sci-fi novel “I Am Number Four” — in stores today, and I can’t recommend it highly enough! — happens to be one of those players, a fortunate thing considering that he’s also attached to direct a “Dead Space” film. “Playing that game was one of the scariest gaming experiences I’ve had in my entire life,” he said in a recent interview with MTV from the “Number Four” set. “So I think the nuances of that and trying to capture that in the movie [are intriguing].”
