Deus Ex film?

Deus Ex the cyper-punk video game series is looking like it might be seeing a film adaptation. Developed by Ion Storm the original game in the series was release in 2000 and was a combination of first person shooter, stealth and role playing game set in a dystopian future.

It is being reported that CBS Films have announced an adaptation of the most recent game in the series ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’, a prequel to the original game released in 2011, where players take on the role of Adam Jensen, in a world with nanotechnological augmentations against a setting where multinational corporations have expanded their power and influence beyond the control of Government.

No crew or casting announcements have been made at this stage and the film is likely some time off release right now. However given the immersive nature of the video games and the depth of story this is a series ripe with material that would make for a compelling film.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
