EA, Starz Produce 'Dead Space'26 Mar, 2008 By: Billy Gil
Electronic Arts Inc. and Starz Media have joined forces to develop an animated prequel to the sci-fi video game Dead Space, to be released on broadcast TV and subsequently DVD.
The feature will pick up where the original comic book series ends and leads up to the beginning of the video game. The story covers the exploits of a futuristic mining spaceship after a mysterious artifact is found and the crew must deal with a sinister alien presence.
The film is set to debut at the same time as the video game, which is due Oct. 28, for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Starz Media films are distributed on DVD via the company's Anchor Bay Entertainment label.
