CBS Films aim to bring Deus Ex videogame to the big screen

Deus Ex has had a pretty decent gamer following over the course of the years. The game first released as a first person shooter back in 2000. A sequel for the game came out in 2003, and after a long hiatus the most recent game, a prequel, came out in 2011.

The prequel, DEUS EX: HUMAN REVOLUTION is the one that CBS Fllms is looking to bring to the big screen. Last year, we did a "Cast This" to see who you guys thought would be best as Adam Jensen if a movie adaptation was ever made. Called it? There was really no unanimous decision on which actor would fit. A couple for Timothy Olyphant, some for Ethan Hawk, and my favorite suggestion, Dominic West.

The story of the game goes like this, "Set in the near future, when dramatic advances in science, specifically human augmentation, have triggered a technological renaissance, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy."

“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,” said Terry Press, Co-President, CBS Films. “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.”

“As the millions of fans who have played the Deus Ex games for more than a decade will tell you, these games catapult you into a universe that is stimulating, engaging and relevant,” said Phil Rogers, president/CEO of Square Enix Europe. “We’re firm believers in building strong partnerships and so we’re thrilled to be working with CBS Films on bringing the unique Deus Ex experience to the big screen.”

Any Deus Ex fans out there excited for this news? Also, any ideas on who would be a good director for the film?
