Does John Carpenter hint at Dead Space movie?
In October 2022, John Carpenter was asked by The A.V. Club if he had ever thought about adapting a game.
The only one I can think of, and I’ve mentioned it before, is Dead Space. That would be a really good movie. I could do it.John Carpenter, Filmmaker
Asked if there were any developments on the Dead Space movie in the Variety interview, Carpenter said that he was never attached to such a project, but he thinks there are other directors already involved.
I’m a big fan of video games, so I play all the games. I was looking at a new digital camera, RED, and happened to mention to them that I would love to do a Dead Space movie.
It was just going around and everyone was saying, ‘Oh, when are you going to do it?’ I wasn’t going to do it. I think they already have other directors involved and they haven’t asked me to do it.
So, until someone asks me, I’m not going to do it. But there’s a new version of the Dead Space video game coming out in January and I’m there.John Carpenter, Filmmaker
