EA, Stars Prep Animated Inferno

Video game maker Electronic Arts and Starz Media are prepping the animated feature Dante’s Inferno, based on a forthcoming game.

The film will be produced by Film Roman, which worked on the company’s first animated video game adaptation, Dead Space: Downfall, released last year, Variety reports. Joe Goyette will produce, with Victor Cook directing and Brandon Auman writing.

Several anime studios are being commissioned to create the nine circles of hell in the story, following the plot of the game and the classic poem from which the project derives its name.
