Deus Ex: Human Revolution Movie In The Works

By Jason Green

Well it certainly is turning out to be a good week in Hollywood.

It was announced yesterday that Michael Fassbender would be the lead in the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie.

Now a mere 24 hours later, another bomb drops in that a movie based off the critically acclaimed 2011 game Deus Ex: Human Revolution is under way.

CBS films, along with help from developer Eidos Montreal and company Square Enix,  have acquired the rights to a movie adaptation with producers Roy Lee (The Ring, The Departed), Andrian Askarieh (Hitman), and newcomer John P. Middleton.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is the third game in the Deus Ex series.

The original Deus Ex was released in June of 2000, followed by the sequel Deus Ex: Invisible War in 2003.

Eight years later, Deus Ex: Human Revolution would come out and serve as the prequel to the series. I can see making a movie out of the most recent, but chronologically first game, making sense.

It’s a known fact that video game movies are never well received.

But I believe that if handled with the right set of hands, a great video game movie can be made.

When Deus Ex was first released 12 years ago, it was very avant garde. Here’s hoping that this movie will do the same for the video-game-movie category.
