Hot on the heels of last week’s announcement that Sam Raimi will direct “Warcraft” (based on “World of Warcraft”), D.J. Caruso has signed on to direct the live-action adaptation of the video game “Dead Space”. According to Variety, Caruso, the producers, and EA have been meeting with screenwriters to try and figure out the story. Once they do, they’re going to auction the property to the studios. More after the jump:

What this all means is, the film is in the very early stages of coming together and we’re a long way from “Dead Space” hitting movie screens.

With directors like Sam Raimi and D.J. Caruso signing on to direct video game adaptations, right now other video game properties are being looked at to see which ones might also work.

Cause if there is one thing Hollywood knows how to do…it’s copy one another. Once someone commits to making something, everyone else dives right in. The thing about this town is, no one wants to be first. Once someone else has taken a chance, everyone jumps right in.

So it goes without saying that I expect a “Grand Theft Auto” announcement any day now. If you aren’t familiar with the game “Dead Space”, click here.

    The GTA creators have said no to any GTA movie so that’s not gonna happen – not to mention most GTA games are a mix of various crime movies. GTA4 had a scene lifted right out of Heat for example.

    Some games can make scene like Warcraft with its huge back story but others dont Gears of War has a really stupid story and it would basically be Transformers2/T4 all action battles with barely any story.

    Dead Space might fair better as it took Alien as a direct inspiration combined with the great System Shock series of games but there is a sci-movie due out soon (cant recall name) which is also doing the exact same.
