'Sinister' Director Scott Derrickson to head Deus Ex screen adaptation

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Nicholas Greene  

Scott Derrickson, director of Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, has been selected by CBS films to direct a movie adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Derrickson will write the script with co-writer C. Robert Cargill, while Roy Lee and adrian Askarieh will act as producers and John P. Middleton will take on the role of executive producer. 

The movie will more or less follow the plot of the game, from the sounds of it, with Adam Jensen working to unravel a global conspiracy after a terrible accident leaves him a little more than human. 

'Sinister' Director Scott Derrickson to head Deus Ex screen adaptation

"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence," Derrickson said. "By combining amazing acting and tension with big, philosophical ideas, it's smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie. Cargill and I can't wait to bring it to the big screen." 

Of course, video game movies don't always work so well, so a few of you Deus Ex fans out there probably aren't terribly thrilled. Derrickson and Cargill, however, have both played through the game from start to finish and are taking the lore of the title very, very seriously. Maybe, just maybe, this film could be the next step towards video game movies getting their act together, and not sucking the big one?

We can only hope.
