Deus Ex: Human Revolution

There's a Deus Ex movie in the works. CBS Films has purchased the film rights to Square Enix's cyberpunk series, and   Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce. The potential movie will be based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

"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," said Terry Press, co-president of 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."

Aslarieh is Square's go-to guy for video game-to-film adaptations. He's currently working on a second Hitman movie, a Just Cause movie and the Kane and Lynch movie, all Square Enix/Eidos properties.

As for the content of the movie, there doesn't seem to be a script yet, but Deus Ex: Human Revolution is set in 2027, when multinational corporations have grown beyond the control of national governments, and cybernetic implants have become a widespread fad. It will follow an ex-SWAT security specialist who must learn to embrace the high-tech prostheses that replace much of his body in order to unravel a global conspiracy that involves an attack on a biotechnology firm tied to developing human enhancements.
