Dante's Inferno getting animated movie spin-off


Just as it did with Dead Space, Electronic Arts has announced an upcoming animated adaptation of EA Redwood Shores' next project, Dante's Inferno.

With a feature film already in the works at Universal, the straight-to-DVD movie is being handled by Starz Media's Film Roman, the same folks behind Dead Space's animated flick, Downfall. The feature is expected to ship alongside the hellish action game in 2010, with different animation houses each offering their own take on Dante Alighieri's nine circles of hell. Details remain short, though as anyone who endured a marathon airing of Rambo and the Forces of Freedom can tell you, there's no better medium to convey hell's lurking horrors than a cartoon.
