Deus Ex: Human Revolution movie on the way

CBS Films to work with developer Eidos Montreal to adapt the game for the big screen

A movie adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is being planned by Square Enix and CBS Films, which has secured film rights to the cyberpunk franchise.


Game-to-film adaptations have a chequered history, to put it kindly, so CBS will be working closely with developer Eidos Montreal to bring the series to the big screen, Variety reports.

Terry Press, co-president of CBS Films, said: "As is clear from the wild success of the game, Square Enix and Eidos Montreal know how to exceed their audience's expectations by engineering incredible worlds. 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."

Human Revolution has sold over 2.5 million copies since launching last August.

Square Enix Europe CEO Phil Rogers added: "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. 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."

It was announced yesterday that X-Men and Prometheus actor Michael Fassbender will star in and co-produce the movie adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed.
