It has been revealed that a movie adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution is being planned by Square Enix and CBS Films. While it’s true game to movie adaptions have had a less than impressive track record in the past, CBS is working very closely with Eidos Montreal to make sure the finished product is something fans will appreciate.
Terry Press, co-president of CBS Films, said: “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.”
Square Enix Europe CEO Phil Rogers added: “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. 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 big screen.”
Deus Ex: Human Revolution managed to sell over 2.5 million copies after nearly a year on release with Square Enix hoping the movie will prove just as popular too.
