In an interview promoting I Am Number Four in Germany, Caruso was asked about Dead Space and had this to say: “We’re working on a story…We had one attempt of trying to do a prequel but the story didn’t quite work out as well as we wanted it to. But if we can capture how – I don’t want to say, I guess, how scary or horrifying it would be to play that game because it’s really, really fantastic. It’d be fun to make that into a movie.”
Confusing, indeed. But don’t worry; computer games have a long and storied history of making excellent films. You know, like Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, Doom, Tomb Raider…Oh dear.
