Variety reports that “the Electronic Arts hit video game Dead Space is on course to become a sci-fi/horror film, with Eagle Eye helmer D.J. Caruso attached to direct.
EA will produce the film with Temple Hill partners Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
The producers, EA and Caruso have been listening to takes from prospective screenwriters, and once they set a writer and EA signs off on a creative direction, they will auction the property to studios. That will likely happen in early September.
Dead Space is set in the 26th century in deep space, where an engineer who responds to a distress signal from a mining ship finds the vessel infested with monstrous creatures called Necromorphs. The creatures are human corpses, reanimated by an alien virus.”
Look for more on this one soon!
