HALLOWEEN Director John Carpenter Reveals Hopes To Adapt Sci-Fi Horror Video Game DEAD SPACE

Filmmaker John Carpenter is a legend, and the Halloween director has now shared his hopes to tackle a sci-fi project by bringing video game Dead Space to the big screen. Find more details after the jump...

John Carpenter is a Hollywood legend, helming classics like Halloween, The Thing, and Christine. At this stage in his career, though, could he tackle a video game adaptation next? 

It may seem like a strange fit, but the filmmaker is a big gamer and just so happens to be a fan of Dead Space. In that sci-fi horror franchise, players are tasked with uncovering the dark secrets behind the events aboard the USG Ishimura through the final logs of the ill-fated crew and your encounters with the few survivors that remain.

Along the way, you square off with all manner of horrifying alien creatures, and it's a game that most definitely isn't for the faint of heart. So, it sounds like a pretty good fit for Carpenter, right?

"The only one I can think of, and I’ve mentioned it before, is Dead Space," the director said when asked if he would helm a video game movie. "That would make a real great movie. I could do that. [Any] of them were really good. I even like the last one, the action one that nobody else liked."

Asked if he gets scared playing games, Carpenter said, "Well, I don’t like things jumping out at me and threatening my character, no! Don’t threaten my character, I want to survive. A lot of games, they penalize you for dying. It’s one of the things I like about Fallout, they don’t penalize you. You die over and over again on a hard mission. I like that."

There have been rumblings about a Dead Space movie over the years, but if anyone can make it happen, it's surely Carpenter. We'd imagine the filmmaker would ground a big screen adaptation a reality, forgoing pricey visual effects for practical gore and creatures. That would be quite something to see.

Would you like to see a Dead Space movie from the Halloween helmer?
