A Dead Space movie is apparently in the works, but no, John Carpenter is not directing



Legendary filmmaker John Carpenter is perhaps best known for iconic horror classics like The Thing and Halloween and for not being able to start the generator in The Last of Us: Part II. He’s a gamer and has played games in the Dead Space series, so it seems like he’d be the perfect choice to helm a movie adaptation, right?

Well, the good news is that it looks like the Dead Space movie is in the works. bad? Carpentry not attached. During the interview, he was asked about the situation diversity and noted that he has never been attached to such a project but thinks there is another director.

Carpenter told a story in which he mentioned that he “would love to do a Dead Space movie. It just went around, and everybody said, ‘Oh, when are you going to do it?’ I won’t do it. I think they already have another director involved. And they haven’t asked me to do it.

This is why we cannot have good things. At least we have the Dead Space remake to look forward to, which launches on PS5 on January 27th. Carpenter himself is excited about its release, noting that “there’s a new version of the Dead Space video game coming out in January, and I’m there”.
