Director D.J Caruso, famous for films Eagle Eye & Disturbia, has confirmed that he will be the director for the Dead Space game-to-film adaptation. Caruso says that the film will be a prequel to Dead Space 2 and will fill in the gaps between the two games.
There are little to no details on the film as of yet, but it is scheduled to be released some time in 2011. It would be nice if the film release coincided with the release of Dead Space 2, but this is far from likely.
Hopefully this will be better than the anime adaptation Dead Space Downfall since it is at least live action. Will it be as gory and pant wettingly terrifying as the games? Highly doubtful, but we shall see. Will Isaac be the silent hero he was in the original game, or will he be vocal as he has been made to be in Dead Space 2? Regardless, I call dibs on Gerard Butler playing the lead.
