Another day, another video game movie. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is unquestionably a fantastic topic to convert into a movie, but will the people working on it do any justice to the conversion? According to CBS Films Michael Finch, the man who wrote Predators, will be writing the script for Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It’s already been confirmed that Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh will be producing the movie.
You might recall Adrian Askarieh producing the Hitman movie? That does not sound too promising right? Well, Roy Lee is the man behind LEGO The Movie and co-produced How to Train Your Dragon 2, so that makes prospects a bit better.
According to the Hollywood Reporter Adam Jensen will be the star of this movie:
[quote]The movie is taking its cues from origin-oriented Deus Ex: Human Revolution and focuses on Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who undergoes mechanical augmentation in order to unravel a global conspiracy[/quote]
The movie is still in its early stages, but we’ll update you with details once we know more. Do you think all these video game-to-movie conversions is a good thing?
