Scott Derrickson to Direct Deus Ex: Human Revolution
CBS Films has announced that Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism Of Emily Rose) will direct the movie version of the Square Enix game Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Derrickson will also write the screenplay for the film with C Robert Cargill (Sinister).
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.
“Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” says 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.”
