Don't Let The Movies Kill Dead Space

Dead Space 2 is a crazy good game, and the survival horror series is building up a sizable fan base. Know what that means?


There are rumblings of movie possibilities. The games already got the animated and graphic novel treatment as well as toys. So a big screen version seems to be the logical next step!

Dead Space co-creator Ian Milham tells the BBC, "We would love to have a live action film and we've had a lot of discussion." But Milham says that one of the reasons that Dead Space still exists and is still popular is that the developers "made sure to do everything right".

Actually, the reason why Dead Space is popular is because the games are really good. Still, if Mario can survive silly cartoons and a horrible movie version, Dead Space will be just fine. Right?

"So we're doing the same with the film," Milham adds, "not just a cheap cash-in but to do something really worthwhile, so we'll see."


Everyone goes to Hollywood with the best intentions, but Hollywood is where video games go to die. Just focus on Dead Space 3, people!
