Dead Space movie still alive

Prequel idea dropped.

The live action Dead Space movie still exists and will happen, its director has insisted.

"We're working on the story," director D.J. Caruso (I Am Number Four, Disturbia) told AreaGames (via Joystiq).

"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.
