Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Deus Ex Human Revolution

The “Deus Ex” video game series has been a big deal for over a decade. In 2011, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix took a page from the movie playbook and made the third entry in the franchise, “Deus Ex: Human Revolution,” a prequel. The cyberpunk game set in 2027 has all the makings of a great sci-fi thriller: mysterious groups with sinister motivations, a program that augments humans into cyborgs, and a ton of ambient noise. Because of that easy translation and its popularity, it’s unsurprising that CBS Films wants to turn it into a movie. According to Deadline Hollywood, they’ve hired writer/director Scott Derrickson to take on the project. He’ll direct as well as write the script with Sinister writing partner C. Robert Cargill (who, full disclosure time, I know personally). It’s a move that will take Derrickson out of the horror world after successes with Emily Rose and the recent Ethan Hawke-led release, pushing him in a different direction that might still hold some of the same tonal elements.
