Scott Derrickson Directing Deus Ex Film
Based on Human Revolution

15 November 2012  |  Written by James White  |  Source: CBS Films

Though we doubt the success of Wreck-It Ralph has had much to do with it, you’ve got to wonder at the coincidence between the success of Disney’s video game-homaging ‘toon across the pond and the latest batch of game-to-film announcements. Yesterday we had Tom Hardy attached to Splinter Cell and today Scott Derrickson taking on the Deus Ex film for CBS.

Announced in early July, Deus Ex comes from Square Enix and the film version will be based on the latest incarnation of the game, Human Revolution. Derrickson is writing the script with his Sinister collaborator C. Robert Cargill.

The plot will follow Adam Jensen, a former SWAT security specialist who is badly injured in the line of duty. He’s given nanotechnological augmentation and must unravel a global conspiracy.

"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” said Derrickson, who continued, “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."

Derrickson is currently developing several films, including supernatural police thriller Beware The Night, which has Eric Bana on to star, an adaptation of Stephen King’s story The Breathing Method and a new take on the story of David and Goliath.

This could Work!
What they need to do is cast either Christian Bale; or Elias Toufexis would actually work in live action too. More

correction
"He’s given nanotechnological augmentation " Nope, human revolution is set several years before the development of nanotechnology, Jenson's enhancements are biomechanical in nature This could potential be an awesome new franchise but I cant help but fear it will go the same way as Max Payne. the ultimate in wasted potential.
