Sci-fi/horror mastermind John Carpenter (The Thing, Escape from New York ... uh, Ghosts of Mars?) told Game Informer that Dead Space would make for a great film and he'd make for a great person to direct it.
"I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something's on board. It's just great stuff," Carpenter said. "I would love to make Dead Space [into a film], I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made."
In other Carpenter news, he regrets purchasing Aliens: Colonial Marines:"They're trying to get you to buy the game, which I stupidly did." Human after all, it seems.
