Legendary horror director and avid gamer John Carpenter has said he would love to direct a Dead Space movie. The revelation came in an interview with Game Informer magazine.

Carpenter is best known for such iconic fear flicks as Halloween, The Thing and The Fog, and he's a big fan of EA's sci-fi horror saga. "It's great," was Carpenter's verdict on Dead Space when asked about his favourite titles. "The first game was more - I guess it was like Alien - but not quite. It was a little different than that."

Does this mean that the horror master would get behind the camera for a film version of Isaac Clarke's battle against the Necromorphs? It certainly sounds like it. "I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something’s on board," Carpenter explains. "It's just great stuff. I would love to make Dead Space, I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made."

This February saw the release of Dead Space 3, which introduced co-operative play and relocated the action to the icy planet of Tau Volantis. EA is already getting into the movie business, with a big screen version of Need for Speed currently in production starring Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul.
