CBS Films announced today that Scott Derrickson, the director of horror flicks such as “Sinister”and “The Exorcism of Emily Rose,” will direct the screen adaptation of the iconic Square Enix video game “Deus Ex: Human Revolution.” Along with directing, Derrickson will also write the screenplay for the film along with C. Robert Cargill (“Sinister”). Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce the film with John P. Middleton serving as Executive Producer.

“‘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.”

The ‘Deus Ex’ franchise was originally introduced in June 2000 and the latest entry, ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution,’ was released in 20ll to universal acclaim, garnering the number one ranking across global sales and winning over 100 industry awards. ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’ was developed by Eidos-Montréal and published by Square Enix, and will act as the template for the film.

“Set in the near future, when dramatic advances in science, specifically human augmentation, have triggered a technological renaissance, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows Adam Jensen, an ex-SWAT security specialist who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.”
