Dead Space Expands to Trilogy
Dead Space is expanding into a trilogy and will also be making the move to the silver screen, with director D.J Caruso slated to direct a film based on EAs well received sci-fi horror.
EA has previously spoken of expanding Dead Space beyond the first game - which saw Isaac Clarke exploring the desecrated innards of the mining ship Ishimura – as well as expressing a desire to see the IP make the leap to the big screen. The first game did well at review, and has already spawned Dead Space: Extraction a Wii spin-off thats coming later this year.
News of a movie spin-off should come as no surprise; the game is already brimming with cinematic influences, and its release was accompanied by Dead Space Downfall, a full length animated film.
Variety reports that a second and third game are in the works, while naming D. J Caruso as the director for the movie. Caruso directed Shia LeBoeuf vehicles Distrurbia and Eagle Eye – so can we expect to see The Beef taking on the Necromorphs in the forthcoming film?
