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.

Would you make a movie from Half life 2 or Half life 1?

Neither, I'd make a movie set in the events between the two - when Gordon was missing (and, to most people, unknown, so I'm not sure I'd even mention Gordon other than a few hints for fans) and an alien invasion was taking over the world.


For this game I'd make one outside the events of DX:HR. I wouldn't use any of the major characters (well, major character) and I wouldn't follow the events of the film. I'd use the world, as you mentioned a world in which augmentations are starting to appear and money is suddenly making you an objectively superior physical being, but I wouldn't deal with any of the other stuff. There's no need to.

DX and HL are ripe for conversion because they built worlds. Something like Uncharted isn't because it just created a character. A fantastic character (I really dug the first two games), but there's no real room for a movie in those games.
