- DEUS EX
Hot-on-the-heels of news that Michael Fassbender is working on an Assassin’s Creed movie comes another high-profile game-to-film adaptation in the shape of Deus Ex, IGN reports.
CBS Films has announced plans to adapt recent sequel Deus Ex: Human Revolution, a strategic sci-fi action-adventure which is set in 2027, when multinational corporations have grown beyond the control of national governments.
The film will closely follow the game's plot, revolving around "an ex-SWAT security specialist who must learn to embrace the high-tech prostheses that replace much of his body in order to unravel a global conspiracy that involves an attack on a biotechnology firm tied to developing human enhancements.”
Adrian Askarieh and Roy Lee will produce, and plan to work closely with developer Eidos-Montreal to get the adaptation right.
"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."
And this won’t be the only game-to-film adaptation that Askarieh is working on, with the producer also overseeing a Hitman sequel as well as Just Cause and Kane and Lynch movies.
It certainly looks like that there wont be a shortage of films based on games in future.
