Film blog Variety is reporting that CBS Films has secured the rights to develop a film based on the Deus Ex videogame franchise, naming Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh as producers -- the later also being attached to other previously announced Square-Enix franchise film productions: Hitman, Just Cause and Kane & Lynch.
With high-profile game-to-film adaptations having mostly stumbled at the box office, and gamemakers getting more cautious over how their franchises are treated by Hollywood, CBS Films will work closely with "Deus Ex" developer Eidos-Montreal on the bigscreen version. Film will revolve around second instalment "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."
The announcement explains that the movie will be a take on the recently released Human Reovlution and it's protagonist Adam Jensen, but isn't clear whether JC Denton and the era of the original Deus Ex games will factor in at all.

So who will play who?

I guess Christian Bale is an almost too obvious choice to play the role of Adam. Maybe hire some unknown instead?

I'd get Thomas Haden Church to play David Sarif.

I will try and think of more.

CBS films? Aren't they a tv network? So does this mean a made-for-tv movie?

Seems they have had some box office releases. Nothing wildly successful though. Until I see a decent director attached I deem this movie 'probably crap' :)

Can't wait to see the part where Jensen ghosts a level and then after he fills a strength aug comes back and punches all the walls he can, hey it happened! I was there!
