Deus Ex: Human Revolution Film Plans

CBS Films is planning a film adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, reports Variety, saying Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are producing the movie. "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," said Terry Press, co-president of CBS Films. "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." Thanks Eurogamer.

What I don't understand is it seems that studios green-light videogame adaptations because they are popular and have a built-in audience before the movie even starts production. Then they produce a movie that pisses off every one of those fans. Why make a Doom movie then change virtually every aspect that makes it Doom? Producers just don't get it, something made painfully apparent by the asinine shit they throw in thinking it's fan service like first person sequence in the Doom movie. Fan service would simply be making a good movie that doesn't piss all over the source material. If the source material isn't good enough to stand on its own, then don't make the friggin' movie.
I agree entirely. I think a lot of it is internal politics from the studios and the people working on the movie. Some writer or director or nephew of a VP wants to put their personal stamp on it, or they just suck at it but because they ARE the nephew of the VP, they get the job.
