Another day, another bit of video game to film adaptation news! Deadline is reporting that Scott Derrickson is in place to direct the Deus Ex: Human Revolution film.
According to Deadline, CBS Films has signed Scott Derrickson to direct Deus Ex: Human Revolution, the screen adaptation of the 2011 hit. Derrickson, who has had a hot hand recently in helming the hits Sinister and The Exorcism Of Emily Rose, will write the script with his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill. Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh will produce, and John P. Middleton is exec producer.
"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.".
