EA confirms 'Dead Space' movie franchise already in the works based on popular video game series EA has confirmed that its oft-rumored 'Dead Space' film adaptation is in the works.
The publisher made the announcement during a Comic-Con panel discussing franchises moving from the small screen to the big screen.

Justin Marks, the writer behind the awful Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, has been signed on for the script. While he confirmed that the movie could not be 100 percent faithful to the game in execution, he would prioritize the main character's story in a way that is proper for a full-length film.

The first Dead Space game was released in 2008, followed by sequels in 2011 and 2013. Each have been well received by critics and gamers. The games follow protagonist Isaac Clarke who battles reanimated human corpses among other monsters.

Industry watchers expect the film to be released in late 2014.

*SMH...another low-budget massacre in the works. Might as well have hired Uwe Boll. Been a while since he's wrecked a good franchise.

When has a movie of a video game ever been a good idea?

I think you people are wrong! I have always thought dead space would make a great movie...IF and I say IF it stuck closely to what happened in the games.

It would be a movie as good as alien if it was done properly, though with this idiot writing it, maybe not.

I despised what he did with Bloodrayne... low budget notwithstanding.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

Meh, BloodRayne didn't have a good story to begin with as pretty much all movies he dealt with.

Bloodrayne was f fun! As was her dialogue. If the game didn't have notoriety he wouldn't have decided to exploit it.
