CBS Films sets movie adaptation of ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’
The popular recent action game gets a movie adaptation soon.
After the big news of Michael Fassbender starring in ‘Assassin’s Creed’ movie adaptation this week, looks like videogame-based movies are on the rise since another big action franchise has now been picked up by a Hollywood studio.
Deadline reports that CBS Films has snatched up the rights for ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’, a recent action game that was well-reviewed and is a part of the Deus Ex franchise that has a good fan base around gamers. The game’s plot is quite cinematic, in the sense that it’s about a security expert Adam Jensen who is trying to figure out who attacked his biotech company. There’s a whole conspiracy behind this, but the cool part is that the character is equipped with all sorts of cyberkinetic technology that allows him to be much more powerful than a mere human.
In a statement, the studio revealed that they want to make a great movie at the end of it:
As is clear from the wild success of the game, Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal know how to exceed their audience’s expectations by engineering incredible worlds. 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.
Sounds good, and hopefully they get a great creative team to handle this as well.
