When asked about the Dead Space series, Carpenter said, "The first game was more - I guess it was like Alien - but not quite. It was a little different than that.
"I maintain that Dead Space would just make a great movie because you have these people coming onto an abandoned, shut-down space ship and they have to start it up and something's on board. It's just great stuff.
"I would love to make Dead Space, I'll tell you that right now. That one is ready-made."
