Electronic Arts Inc. and Starz Media have announced that the upcoming horror survival video game 'Dead Space' is getting an animated movie prequel, as well as two other EA franchises.
The animated feature script picks up the plot where the original comic book series ends and leads up to the beginning of the Dead Space game.
The story focuses on the events aboard a futuristic mining spaceship, the USG Ishimura, after it pulls a mysterious artifact from a remote dig site. The artifact triggers the sudden invasion of a long-dormant alien presence, and the Ishimura's crewmembers find themselves locked in a frantic struggle to survive. The animated feature is slated to premiere at the same time as the game is launched.
