According to reports, EA have inked a deal for Dead Space to go to the silver screen with 'Eagle Eye' director D.J. Caruso to lead the enterprise.
The devs are also lining up two sequels in the franchise, ensuring the survival of this horror survival. A writer is yet to be found but EA is expected to auction to studios in September.
"The producers, EA and Caruso have been listening to takes from prospective screenwriters, and once they set a writer and EA signs off on a creative direction, they will auction the property to studios. That will likely happen in early September," reports .
"EA launched the game in 2008 and is working on the second and third installments," added the piece. It comes as no surprise that EA want to see more from this new franchise IP, especially after its rave reception from critics and gamers - it's a safe bet surely?
