Director: Dead Space movie still in production, prequel idea "didn't quite work out"

You know what'd be cool? A Dead Space movie. Shame they're not making on--

Huh? They have been? Since 2009? Well, what's going on? Is it... dead?

"We're working on the story," director D.J. Caruso told AreaGames. "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."

Well, on the upside, no one will have to endure our hideous shrieks in a public setting for a while. In space, no one can hear you scream, but when we're playing a game about that topic, well, in our defense, it only sounds like sobbing. And those aren't tears; it's just, er, raining. You know, in our living room.

Thanks, Joystiq.
