Video Game 'Deus Ex' Headed To The Big Screen From Director Scott Derrickson

Deus Ex Scott Derrickson

Between "Splinter Cell," "Assassin's Creed," "Need For Speed,"  and now "Deus Ex," it's safe to say that studios are interested (once again) in video game properties in a big, big way. And yet another best-selling title continues to inch foward to the big screen.

"Sinister" and "The Exorcism Of Emily Rose" hemler Scott Derrickson will write and direct the big screen version of the Square ENIX game that is currently set up at CBS Films. As previously reported, the movie version will use last year's "Deus Ex: Human Revolution" as the launch pad, with the story taking place in 2025, 25 years before the events of the first game, and it will tell the tale of "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." Okay.

While Derrickson might not seem the most obvious name to take this one, he does have blockbuster experience as the guy behind "The Day the Earth Stood Still" remake that was pretty terrible. But "Sinister" has a been a hit, so he's got some heat behind him. In fact, he's currently also attached to the Stephen King adapation "The Breathing Method" as well as the supernatural thriller "Beware the Night" starring Eric Bana, which looks to be next. So basically, this is probably still a way off, but nonetheless, gears are turning... [THR]
