We usually cringe when hearing about new movies, but something like Deus Ex seems tailor-made for the big screen.
Just gotta do it right, that's all. And according to GameSpot , CBS Films has obtained Scott Derrickson ("Sinister," "The Exorcism of Emily Rose") to direct the movie adaptation of the award-winning Deus Ex: Human Revolution . He will also help C. Robert Cargill ("Sinister") with writing the script.
On board as producers are Roy Lee ("The Departed," "The Ring") and Adrian Askarieh ("Hitman"), and the executive producer is John P. Middleton, who is currently cranking away on several new movies, including "7500," a supernatural horror flick. Said Derrickson:
"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence. By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie. Cargill and I can't wait to bring it to the big screen."
Lastly, it seems like CBS Films is working with both publisher Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal on this movie, so let's cross our fingers. Yes, Deus Ex has some intelligence, so don't let that fall by the wayside, okay? We really don't need another "Hitman" disaster, thanks.
