for the horror master John Carpenter, video games have been one of his great passions throughout his life and, along with his musical and film career, one of his greatest sources of inspiration in his work. But making a movie based on a video game is an opportunity that unfortunately hasn’t materialized for him until now. In an interview with AV Club, he was asked the director which game he would like to make into a movie, and he replied as follows:
“The only one I can think of, and I’ve mentioned it a few times before, is Dead Space. That would be a great movie. I could do that… Well, any of them are really good. I even like the last installment, the action one that no one liked.”
Interestingly, there have been rumors for some time that Dead Space could be made into a feature film, and we have no doubt that Carpenter could be a great director. For our part, it only remains to cross our fingers and wait for hollywood to work its magic.
What do you think, would you like to see a Dead Space movie from horror master Carpenter?
