The long-in-stasis Dead Space movie is still happening.

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."

      Doubt it could be any worse than the story in those games, really.

        Well. Haven't played the third one just yet because of the ridiculous pricetag on ps3, but the story was very solidly fleshed out in the first one.

      Looks like Duke Nuked obliterated someone else's comment I found funny. Lame.

      And we can say farewell to any hopes of a good adaptation.

        Seriously. Why would they throw money at this person and hinge the reputation of their brand on such a loser?

      At San Diego Comic-Con, Marks said that the film adaptation shouldn't replicate the action of the game - - Wait, why are you even making this movie then??

        Is there any part of Hollywood that isn't completely backwards and unworthy of paying attention to?

      Not like deadspace is well-writeen, highly-original fiction.

      It's the thing + aliens + doom + etc., derivative to the max.

        Correct, and they could make it an average movie combination of those that's a "decent" watch. Instead they decided to possibly make it much, much worse.

        name something that isn't a combination of earlier iterations of the same medium. being derivative isn't the same as being bad.
