Dead Space movie to be penned by The Legend of Chun-Li writer

The long-in-stasis Dead Space movie is still happening. In an effort to push the franchise through the gears of Hollywood, the publisher has secured a writer to help pen the script. The scariest part of the news? EA has tapped Justin Marks, writer of the critically lambasted Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.

At San Diego Comic-Con, Marks said that the film adaptation shouldn't replicate the action of the game, Variety reports. "You would be making Event Horizon or Alien," he said. "I've already seen that movie."

Instead, Marks hopes to tell the story in a way that's "new and intriguing."
