Deus Ex: Human Revolution film in the works (PCGamer)

CBS have acquired the screen rights to Deus Ex: Human Revolution and will be working closely with the developers, Eidos Montreal, to make a film. Welcome to the terrible mental no man’s land that lies somewhere between “hmm, interesting” and “ohnononono.” Let’s take a look at what the folk involved have to say about the thing and then recklessly judge the endeavour.

The shadowy conspirator picks up a datapad to find a conveniently relevant Variety article on the front page. It suggests that the plot of the film will be similar to that of the game. Instead of a security guard, Jensen’s character will be a SWAT operative, but he’ll still have augmentations, which he’ll have to use to bring down a corrupt and sinister conspiracy. The conspirator nods. Is he pleased? It’s too damn dark to tell.

With a few taps at a console dossiers appear on the flat screen. One man’s name swims out of the flickering golden UI. Adrian Askarieh, producer of the Deus Ex project, previous projects: Hitman.

The room grows cold.

Another name: Roy Lee. Previous credits: The Ring (US remake), The Grudge (US remake).

Could a good movie be made in the Deus Ex universe? Sure. But it would take effort; and I doubt anybody putting the money into this has any interest making an effort...

3. Exactly.

Just by what was written in the article we're not talking about Blue anymore, the whole thing is already taking on a Purple hue. That only means that we are well onb our way to getting Red.

4. Most probably.

Although I have to admit that I didn't hate the Silent Hill movie, but then I've never played any of the games, I've only seen them in YouTube videos, so I'm not that familiar with the source material.

I thought the movie was nicely creepy, and also liked that it had few action sequences, but concentrated more on the atmosphere of the place. Of course it all fell apart in the last act, when it turned into a generic monster movie...
