Topic: John Carpenter is interested in a Dead Space adaptation
Even seeing a mention of Carpenter expressing interest in a new movie gets me excited. I've been wanting to see another great movie from him for a long time now. Not too get anyones' hopes up too high, but this would be great if it actually happened.
First of all, I had no idea Carpenter would look into a gaming franchise such as Dead Space. I have played (and really enjoyed) the first Dead Space game of a series of three main games. It essentially is a cross between The Thing and Alien (and a bit of Event Horizon too). The premise involves a crew boarding a large space vessel that went out of contact, and the people on board have been changed into horrible-"Thing"-like monsters called necromorphs. There's some nice backstory to it and it's filled with plenty of tension. Unfortunately, the series itself dropped off into action territory and lost its "magic" - think the change from Alien to Aliens, but not done well.
Again, this doesn't mean it will go anywhere, but you never know. What do you guys think? Any Dead Space fans out there?
