Back in 2009, D.J. Caruso signed on to direct Dead Space. Since then, we haven't heard much about the project -- a piece here; a small morsel there. An interview with AreaGames during a German press tour for I Am Number Four, Caruso's latest film, brings news that a big-screen adaptation of Dead Space is still very alive.

"We're working on the story," Caruso said in the video interview, which you can see for yourself just past the break. "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." And we wouldn't mind seeing it, granted none of those crazy-scary Necromorph children from Dead Space 2 make their way into the film.


Fast-forward to 1:26 for the Dead Space talk.
