In an interview with the BBC, art director at Visceral Games and co-creator of the Dead Space franchise Ian Milham has stated that the studios has had lots of internal discussions regarding the ideas for a live-action film based on the third-person horror shooter. He added that the developer would love to have such a film made, but he did indicate that they did not wish to develop it as a “cheap cash-in,” but rather do something more worthwhile.
Earlier this week, EA published the second animated feature-film based on the Dead Space franchise. This film, which is titled Dead Space: Aftermath, fills in the gaps between the original Dead Space and the recently-released sequel. In October 2008, another animated film was released, which bridged the events occurring between Dead Space: Extraction and Dead Space.
