'Deus Ex Will Make One Hell Of A Movie'
Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism Of Emily Rose) will direct the Deus Ex: Human Revolution film adaptation.
According to a report from Deadline New York, CBS Films signed Derrickson to write the Deus Ex screenplay alongside C. Robert Cargill, alongside directing duties. Derrickson reportedly only agreed to the project after completing the game, of which he's now a massive fan.
"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” Derrickson said in a statement. “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.”
This news follows the confirmation that Michael Fassbender will star in an Assassin's Creed film, while Tom Hardy has been attached to a Splinter Cell adaptation.
At the risk of sounding incredibly trite, we didn't ask for this.
