Electronic Arts and Starz Media will make an animated feature adaptation of the videogame Dante's Inferno: An Animated Epic, which hits stores next year.

According to Variety, Film Roman, a subsid of Starz, will produce the film, as it did with Dead Space: Downfall.

Dante's Inferno will mirror the game's plot and follow Dante's journey through the nine circles of Hell -- limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery -- in search of his true love, Beatrice.

Both are based on part one of Dante's classic poem "The Divine Comedy," better known as "Dante's Inferno."

The game bows on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 next year. It's being developed at EA Redwood Shores.

"The animated feature will be a great companion piece to the game," said Jonathan Knight, executive producer and creative director for "Dante's Inferno." "The feature will explore aspects of the poem that the game does not, and will provide more insight into the characters and the unique story adaptation that the game has established."
