John Carpenter, a legendary film director, may have accidentally leaked the development of a Dead Space film. Carpenter stated in an interview, in what could almost be a throwaway comment, that it directly suggests such a project exists if read correctly.

Carpenter is an Award-winning Academy director whose films include The Fog, Halloween, and Escape From New York. He’d be ideal for a film based on one of the most horrific video game franchises. Still, according to him, he needs to be up to direct it.

But someone else is.

Is A Dead Space Movie On The Way?

Much has been made recently about live-action adaptations of top-tier gaming franchises. We’ve covered so many of them that we might as well compile a quick repository for you:

  • Death Stranding 2’s movie
  • The God of War series
  • The Last of Us television show
  • Henry Cavill’s Warhammer 40K series

Dead Space is the latest title to be added to the list of potential film franchises. This idea has been floating around for a long time. It’s the ideal setting for a horror film, and according to John Carpenter, it’s currently in the works.

When asked if there is any movement on Carpenter directing a potential Dead Space film, Carpenter said in an interview with Variety:

According To John Carpenter, A Dead Space Movie Is Under Development

It’s not going to happen. They already have another director on board. And I have yet to ask anyone to do it. So, if someone asks, I will do it. But a new Dead Space video game is coming out in January, and I’ll be there.

So, John Carpenter, a legendary director plugged into Hollywood’s inner workings, believes that a director is involved with a Dead Space movie. It’s time to discuss taking something like this with a pinch of salt. Still, if that statement is to be believed, it could mean that a grisly, gory horror film is on the horizon, and its name is Dead Space.
