Eagle Eye director D.J Caruso is set to helm a movie version of the game “Dead Space,” a film that will be produced by Electronic Arts and Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill. Not for nothing, Caruso is said to also be working on an adaptation the game “Defender.”

Right now, “Dead Space” is looking at prospective screenwriters. Once EA has a set “creative direction,” they will begin to selling it to studios. Variety thinks that the auctioning will happen in early September.

“Dead Space” is set in the 26th century in space. It’s about an engineer who answers a distress call from a ship only to find on board monstrous creatures born from human corpses called Necromorphs. EA is also working on two sequels for the game launched in 2008.

The eerie video-game is one of many titles that are soon to get a cinematic adaptation. »
