Deus Ex: Human Revolution Movie Gets Green Light

"A Film Adaptation Worthy Of The Deus Ex Name"

CBS Films has secured the rights to adapt Deus Ex: Human Revolution into a feature film, with Roy Lee (The Departed) and Adrian Askarieh (Hitman) slated to produce.

According to Variety, CBS will be "working closely" with Square Enix and Eidos Montreal to ensure that the film is "worthy" of the source material, especially when the Askarieh-produced Hitman tie-in failed to wow consumers or critics back in 2007.

"As is clear from the wild success of the game, Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal know how to exceed their audience's expectations by engineering incredible worlds," said Terry Press, co-president of CBS Films. "No one knows 'Human Revolution' like the team that created it, and we look forward to working with them from day one to make a film adaptation worthy of the 'Deus Ex' name."

"As the millions of fans who have played the 'Deus Ex' games for more than a decade will tell you, these games catapult you into a universe that is stimulating, engaging and relevant," elaborated Phil Rogers, president and CEO of Square Enix Europe. "We're firm believers in building strong partnerships, and so we're thrilled to be working with CBS Films on bringing the unique 'Deus Ex' experience to the bigscreen."

We didn't ask for this.

Unlike the Human Revolution game then? :p

A film based on the first game would be infinitely better on every level. Exploring all of those (real) conspiracies, governments invading privacy illegally, Illuminati, MJ12, etc. ... too awesome to ever happen.
