Visceral hints at Dead Space movie

Dead Space co-creator Ian Milham’s let slip that developer Visceral Games has discussed the possibility of a live-action adaptation of the sci-fi horror franchise.

Speaking during an interview with the BBC, Milham revealed the studio would “love” to see the critically acclaimed series make the transition to the silver screen.

"We would love to have a live action film and we’ve had a lot of discussion," he commented.

A fully-fledged Dead Space flick is perfectly conceivable – the series has already seen a number of anime spin-offs, including Dead Space: Downfall (2008) and Dead Space: Aftermath (2011).

Fortunately, Milham’s pledged that if a movie version of Isaac Clarke’s blood-filled adventures were to materialise, it wouldn’t just be a “cheap cash-in.”

"One of the reasons Dead Space still exists and is popular is because we’ve made sure to do everything right," he added.

"So we’re doing the same with the film, not just a cheap cash-in but to do something really worthwhile, so we’ll see."
