Now here are two things that could go together as well as bread and butter: John Carpenter and Dead Space. Check out what the Master of Horror had to say about potentially doing an adaptation of the popular video game series.

“You know it’s great,” Carpenter told Game Informer in relation to the Dead Space franchise. “The first game was more – I guess it was like Alien – but not quite. It was a little different than that. I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down spaceship, and they have to start it up and something’s on board. It’s just great stuff. I would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I’ll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made.”

Carpenter also give his thoughts about Aliens: Colonial Marines“It’s all about money,” he said. “It’s not that something is being mistreated, it’s just another marketing issue.”Admitting he himself was fooled into buying the game, he added, “They’re trying to get you to buy the game, which I stupidly did.”

Hopefully this comes to fruition sometime in the future.
