Dead Space animated film this fall?

People are making a big deal about this.  The prequel comic came out a couple weeks ago.  Now it looks like there'll be a film continuing where the comic will leave off.  This is great news for Electronic Arts.  I've seen some scenes from the video game.  Looks good but I haven't actually played it.  Let's hope all this fuss is a good sign.  I'm all for the "survival horror" type games.

Starz' Film Roman unit is producing a film that serves as a prequel to the game, picking up where a comic that is being made by Image Comics leaves off.
