Following the multimedia model that made Dead Space such a success, Electronics Arts has once again joined with Starz and Anchor Bay to distribute an animated feature based upon the upcoming video game Dante’s Inferno.
In the wake of the news of the just announced movie tie-in, Variety confirmed today that Film Roman’s Joe Goyette (Dead Space: Downfall) is the producer on the project, which Victor Cook (Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron) is directing and Brandon Auman (Iron Man: Armored Adventures) is writing.
“The animated feature will be a great companion piece to the game,” Jonathan Knight, executive producer and creative director for Dante’s Inferno, tells Variety. “The feature will explore aspects of the poem that the game does not, and will provide more insight into the characters and the unique story adaptation that the game has established.”
Look for Dante’s Inferno on the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3 next year.
