It has long been rumored that the 2008 survival horror game Dead Space is going to be adapted into a movie and John Carpenter, the master of the genre, is the best choice for the production. As a result, John Carpenter just declared that he would never direct the long-awaited adaptation that actually takes place.
Carpenter told AV Club that he wanted to make this game into a movie in the October 2017 interview.
I can only imagine Dead Space – I mentioned that before. That would be a great movie. I can… All were very good. I also like the last one, the act that no one else liked.
The director, who recently took a step back at work, shed some light on the project’s progress. Carpenter said in a talk about Variety:
No no. I can’t believe it spread like this. I enjoy video games. I looked at the new RED digital camera and told them I wanted to do a Dead Space movie. It just started and everyone was like, ‘Oh, when are you doing this?’ I won’t do that. I think they already got another director involved. And they didn’t want me to do that. So as long as someone asks me, I won’t do it. But there is already a new version of Dead Space iPod that will be released in January.
John Carpenter is widely regarded as one of the greatest writers in horror literature.
While Carpenter believes an adaptation of the game is in testing, developer Electronic Arts hasn’t released any official statements about the use of film projects.
Carpenter hasn’t produced a film since 2010’s The Ward, a supernatural psychological horror film. He has worked on the Halloween sequels as a composer and executive producer of Halloween’s, Halloween’s Kills, and Halloween Ends. However, he suggested that under certain circumstances he might make a film.
We might see something, but they’re enlightened, like a ghost in King Kong. But if you count our budget I’m open to it as it’s quite a lot of money if it’s more open to it and for the limited time it has for it and for people to let go of the basketball season and for the playoffs.
Halloween is an international bestseller.
Once the film is released, fans can look forward to the Death Space remake that will be created by the Motive Studios family. The remake is available for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox X/S.
