Animated film to premiere alongside video game

Anchor Bay, EA team on 'Dead Space: Aftermath'

Anchor Bay Entertainment and Electronic Arts have produced “Dead Space: Aftermath” as an animated feature that will launch alongside the release of the “Dead Space 2” videogame next month.

Film Roman (“The Simpsons”) handled animation duties on the pic, which revolves around the horrifying experiences of four crew members of the USG O’Bannon, a spaceship sent to rescue the USG Ishimura, which has lost contact with Earth.

Film will appear on Blu-ray and DVD on Jan. 25, the same date as the game’s release.

Project provides EA with another outlet through which it can tell a story tied to the “Dead Space” franchise but different from the storylines of its games. In “Dead Space 2,” central character Isaac Clarke will find himself battling horrific beasties on an all-new space installation rather than the USG Ishimura.

In 2008, EA and Film Roman paired up to co-produce “Dead Space: Downfall” as an animated prequel to the game’s version for the Nintendo Wii, “Dead Space: Extraction.” Film was released on DVD weeks before it aired on Syfy.

Joe Goyette is producing the follow-up with Mike Disa as supervising director. Ellen Goldsmith-Vein is exec producing through the Gotham Group.

Christopher Judge, Peter Woodward, Graham McTavish, Ricardo Chavira and Gwendoline Yeo will voice the characters.
