Dead Space Headed To Big Screen, Sequel Confirmed

These days, if a game turns out to be popular, the developer/publisher is often quick to tell everyone that a sequel is in the works. Given the widespread popularity and appeal of Dead Space, you had to guess this was coming.

According to Variety, general manager for the game, Glenn Schofield, hinted that Dead Space 2 is definitely on the way when he spoke about the possibility of a big screen adaptation. Yeah, the game may seem perfectly suited for movies, but given Hollywood’s track record with video game films, we’d almost rather they didn’t try this time. That’s not stopping EA, though, who didn’t get to their position by ignoring huge money-making opportunities. Said Schofield:

“We’re talking with movie studios right now. We have been all along. The difference with this is we need to go in and say, ‘This is not a $10 million movie.’ Sure somebody could make it, but that’s not what we are looking for. It’s an expensive movie. By doing this now, we could have a movie that bridges the gap between the two games.”

The “two games” part all but confirms the sequel, and now, it’s only a matter of time before someone ponies up the cash to make the movie, right? In writing this story, we can say we’re very happy to hear about a sequel – it’s guaranteed to kick ass – but we’re just plain bored with the announcement of a movie idea. Yeah, whatever. How can we not believe that Hollywood will butcher another awesome game? We’re almost positive they will, regardless of how much money gets dumped into the project, and given that, we’re far more interested in hearing details on the second Dead Space. Give us that, EA. It’s what the gamers want, we promise.

The should do what the did with the first. The comic and anime were a great idea to prequel the game. They were fantastic.
They should do the same with the sequel. That would be kick ass. An actual movie on the other hand, remember what the did with Doom? Yeah.

Dear God another good game gone to sh** by the way of Hollywood butchers

This is how they are going to kill gaming in relation to the article about gamers doing their part to keep our sanctuary clean this is how

They will turn our beloveds into sh** movies that make the masses go "holy crap I better start playing these kick ass games"

Then BAM all of a sudden sh** head frat boys on a bender destroy all hope of good games by flooding the market with money spent on DOA Beach Volleyball Extreme.

No offense to anyone who loves that game but come on and be real with yourselves for a second. That game was about digital T

Speaking of great games turning into horrible movies... has anyone seen Max Payne? I haven't seen it yet, seeing that I live in the middle of nowhere, but was wondering if it was worth it?
