Filmmaker John Carpenter has suggested a Dead Space movie is in the works.
Last October, the famed director of horror films including Halloween, The Thing and The Fog was asked about if he’d ever thought of adapting a game.
“The only one I can think of, and I’ve mentioned it before, is Dead Space,” he told The A.V. Club. “That would make a real great movie. I could do that.”

Asked if there was any movement on a Dead Space film in a new Variety interview, Carpenter said he was never attached to such a project, but that he thinks another director is.
“I’m a big video game fan, so I played all the games,” he said. “I was down looking at the new digital cameras, the RED, and happened to mention to them that I would love to do a Dead Space film. That just went around, and everybody said, ‘Oh, when are you gonna do it?’ I’m not gonna do it. I think they already have another director involved. And they haven’t asked me to do it. So until someone asks me, I wouldn’t do it. But there’s a new version of the Dead Space video game coming out in January, and I’m there.”
