Production house CBS Films has named Scott Derrickson as the director of the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution movie, to be based on the story of the cybernetically-augmented Adam Jensen of the 2011 videogame of the same name.

Derrickson is known for the acclaimed horror films Sinister, and The Exocisim of Emily Rose, and the less-loved Keanu Reeves-staring sci-fi The Day the Earth Stood Still, and will be penning the Deus Ex script with Sinister co-writer Robert Cargill (via: Deadline).
“Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” said Derrickson. “By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie. Cargill and I can’t wait to bring it to the big screen.”

I’m told that Derrickson and Cargill are serious about the lore of this game. In fact, they sat there and played through, all the way to the finish, before taking the meeting that ended up in this deal.
Perhaps there's hope for the future of videogame to film adaptations after all.

Once someone can crack how to do video games as movies, expect a lo of them. You need good talent though and I don't think these guys are that.

Part of me wonders though, why? Don't games cost less than films and big ones make more than most films.

Sinister was apparently pretty good; don't reckon these guys are good enough to do the Deus Ex canon justice though.

Shame.
