Deus Ex: Human Revolution to be made into a film

CBS Films to work closely with Eidos Montreal to create a film based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the third instalment in the cyberpunk first person shooter series, is set to be brought to the silver screen as CBS Films have managed to get their hands on the screen rights, and they intend to work closely with the game's developers Eidos Montreal.

Producers Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh have already been named to be working on the project, and are also both working on film adaptations of other video games at present, including a Hitman and Kane & Lynch.

"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."

The title is set in the year 2027 when the world has become a dystopia ruled by multinational corporations that have grown to a size that pales state governments.

CBS's film will closely follow the game's plot, involving an ex-SWAT security specialist that is tasked with mastering the high-tech prostheses that have replaced a large proportion of his body.

He will have to "unravel a global conspiracy that involves an attack on a biotechnology firm tied to developing human enhancements".

This news comes just after Michael Fassbender has been confirmed to play the lead role in an adaption of the video game Assassin's Creed.

The current run of film adaptations in development will hope to buck the trend of movies designed around games not being worth the paper the script was written on. Films such as those made by famed video game film director Uwe Boll (Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead, Far Cry) have been so bad that it begs the question of who gives him funding.

Meanwhile, big budget movies with wide release, such as Tomb Raider, Max Payne, Silent Hill and Resident Evil have all equally been panned by critics.ADNFCR-1220-ID-801406405-ADNFCR
