The live action Dead Space movie still exists and will happen, its director has insisted.
"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."
The Dead Space movie is a collaboration between EA and Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey.
In January Dead Space developer Visceral Games insisted the live action movie will not be "just a cheap cash-in", but "something really worthwhile".
A number of animated films, books and comics are already available, extending the Dead Space universe beyond the games.
