Deus Ex: Human Revolution to become feature film

Originally Posted by CBS

Derrickson will also write the screenplay for the film with C. Robert Cargill (Sinister). Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce the film with John P. Middleton serving as Executive Producer.

"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 directs good horror and The Exorcism of Emily Rose was rather good, but nothing I would call particularly amazing. I could always hope this will somehow magically turn into an amazing film, but going by Derrickson's statements painting the game as having 'amazing action' - which it doesn't have, emphasis on either word, it's looking to be an action B-movie.

I guess if there's any silver lining to this, it's that Square Enix is serious about Deus Ex as a franchise, further affirming suspicions of a Deus Ex 4.

Well, seeing as Human Revolution seems the focus of this take, you know who looks the part? Keanu Reeves, a most fitting Jensen.

I simply will not be able to stomach any audio-video representation of Adam Jensen without Elias Toufexis' voice. :carms:

To the topic in general: I've always loathed it when people called for the creation of a Deus Ex live action movie (often done in awe after watching the cinematic cg trailers).

Deus Ex is a bastion of video game history; let it remain as such. There is no reason for it to be bastardized into a movie, especially when video-game movies have almost always been horrible detriments to their respective IP's. ಠ_ಠ

Imagine the ending.

it could work, but i can think of better games to turn into a movie (Mass Effect, Kotor, Assassin's Creed...)

Not sure if you know this Stingy, but Assassin's Creed is locked for a 2013 release by Ubisoft. It will be starring Michael Fassbender, and is a pretty serious project by Sony and Ubisoft Motion Pictures, as awkward as that combination of words sounds.
