Great news for Deus Ex fans, as Square Enix and CBS films have plans for a movie adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Although we don’t have enough information about it, we do know that CBS Films has secured film rights to the cyberpunk franchise and that EIDOS will be be working closely with CBS to bring the series to the big screen.
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.”
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 will also be interesting – and amazing at the same time – if Elias Toufexis reprises his role as Adam Jensen in this movie adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
