So I guess this means he won't direct THE BREATHING METHOD?!
Scott Derrickson, hot off the critically and financially successful SINISTER, will apparently direct the screen adaptation of the iconic Square Enix video game DUES EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION instead. Derrickson will also write the screenplay for the film with C. Robert Cargill (SINISTER).
"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” said Derrickson, who continued, “By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie. Cargill and I can't wait to bring it to the big screen."
The cyberpunk- influenced Deus Ex: Human Revolution occurs during the year 2027, 25 years or so prior to Deus Ex. Nanotechnological augmentations have yet to be produced and structural augmentations are classified as the latest technology. The key character, Adam Jensen, is a individual security official with Sarif Industries, a number one firm who specializes in human augmentations. Following, he witnesses an assault on his firm which results in him horrifically wounded and made to undertake augmentation to live, “the conspiracy starts.” The player is going to go to 5 cities during the period of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, such as Detroit, Montreal along with Shanghai. Additionally, the character can have his own condo where he could keep his important things as well as gathered info. The occasions in the game will certainly lead to the formation of UNATCO from the original game.
Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce the film with John P. Middleton serving as Executive Producer.
Alright, so let's get a pulse. Is DEUS EX the project you want to see Derrickson follow SINISTER up with? Should he have chosen to helm THE BREATHING METHOD instead?
