Deus Ex: Human Revolution Movie Lands Director, Producers

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.

Hmm, mixed bag. I thought Derrickson did a great job with 'The Exorcism of Emily Rose', but the remake of 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' was a real letdown (even keeping expectations low for a remake), and I haven't seen 'Sinister.'
No idea who Cargill is.
Roy Lee's only decent credit (that I know of) is as executive producer (which doesn't necessarily mean much) of 'The Departed.' Everything else is shoddy.
As for somebody who worked on 'Hitman', that's definitely worrisome. It indicates they're hiring people who don't understand their source material.
Bah, whatever. I'll probably end up still seeing it.

Sounds like a decent enough team. If it's going to work though they can't just graft Deus Ex staple characteristics into an action movie, they will need to make a classic-styled crime drama and shape it around the world of Deus Ex with the proper accoutrements.

So, I think it also depends if they going to make it as just all action, all stealth, or a decent combination of both.

Myself, I'm hoping for a tasty super-sized combo happy meal(hold the toys).

Hey, hey now. What's this with the Hitman tragedy? Great film. Absolutely loved it and the actor as 47!

The way the director(?) was describing the film I'd say he know exactly how to bring it to the screen.

PLEASE let Adam's voice actor be the actual protagonist. That would be immense!

This is one of the very, very few movies based on a game that I'd be interested in. Absolutely loved the setting and atmosphere, and done right it could be an *awesome* movie.
