Renowned horror director John Carpenter--who brought moviegoers The Thing, Escape of New York, and Halloween--has said he would like to adapt Dead Space to the silver screen.
Speaking in the latest issue of Game Informer magazine, Carpenter said the isolated setting of the original Dead Space's USG Ishimura would make a natural fit for a film.
"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," said Carpenter.
"I would love to make Dead Space, I'll tell you that right now," adding that the game "is ready-made" for a film adaptation.
Dead Space 3 was released in February, though publisher EA has said the third game in the series failed to meet its sales expectations.
The 65-year-old director also admitted that he also "stupidly" purchased a copy of the disappointing Aliens: Colonial Marines earlier in the year.
