CBS Films To Adapt ‘Deus Ex: Human Revolution’ Video Game
  |  @   |  

Michael Fassbender surprised everybody yesterday by attaching himself to star in and produce a film based on the Assassin’s Creed video game series. Though video game adaptations don’t fare to well at the box office or with critics, the fact that Fassbender will be starring in and producing makes for a promising start for the Assassin’s Creed film.

But this isn’t the only bit of video game adaptation news that’s floating around the wire. CBS Films is now getting into the act by snagging the rights to Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The game centers on Adam Jensen, whose body is modified by cybernetic devices that enhances physical skills and extra-sensory powers, searches for clues behind an attack on his biotech company.

The thin plot is only supported by the fact that Jensen’s organic body has been technologically modified. Knowing that he has new enhanced physical skills and extra-sensory powers gives way for a director to interpret any way he or she pleases. But I am sure that the screenwriter that will be hired to pen the script will make the story and its characters a bit more exciting.

Personally I’ve never played the game, but from what I have read, it’s a pretty successful PC game that has spans three titles. You can read Geeks of Doom’s review right here.

Deadline reports that CBS will bring Square Enix – the game’s developers – into the fold and have them involved in the creative process for the film. No word yet on who will be writing or directing.
