Deus Ex: Human Revolution film in the making

Square Enix and CBS Films are to collaborate on a film on Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

Variety reports that Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh will produce the flick, while John P. Middleton will be the executive producer. Maria Faillace and Alex Ginno of CBS Films will over see the film for the company.


Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal will also be involved in the creative process by working closely on the film with CBS Films.

"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," said Square Enix Europe president and CEO Phil Rogers.

"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 bigscreen."

CBS Films co-president Terry Press added: "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."
