CBS Films has signed Scott Derrickson to direct Deus Ex: Human Revoultion, the screen adaptation of the iconic Eidos Montreal videogame.
Derrickson, who has had recent hits with Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, will write the script with his Sinster co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh will produce, and John P. Middleton is executive producer.
The story will follow the game's plot which is set in a dystopian setting reminiscent to Blade Runner. Not familiar with the plot? Check out a summary below.
In the Year 2027, a time of great innovation and technological advancement, the use of human augmentation has triggered a technological renaissance and a divide between humanity. It's also a time of chaos and conspiracy were no one can be fully trusted and corporations have more power then the government.
The protagonist, Adam Jensen, never had a choice to be give augmentations, but must use them in order to unravel a global conspiracy. In a world were evolution comes at the cost of humanity, you the player must make decisions that effects the entire game. No mater what some people will be left behind. He never asked for this.
"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” said Derrickson. “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.”
Deus Ex: Human Revoultion is out now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and Onlive.

The fact that they will be "writing" a script says to me, "hey, let's see just how much we can screw up this movie". Why not use the game's script? Better yet. Why not have everyone who is going to be involved with the movie adaptation of the game, actually play the game? Furthermore, why have a director who is known for making movies in the *cough* "horror genre" *cough cough* direct a science fiction movie? There are so many questions not being asked.
