With the news that Michael Fassbender will star in the upcoming big screen adaptation of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed and that new writers have been hired for God of War movie, it seems that studios might finally take "films based on video games" seriously. There are just too many bad adaptations out there, it's not really a surprise that people don't care much about them. But, here is hoping this will change over the next several years, because we can add another video game franchise that will become a feature film adaptation: Deus Ex: Human Revolution. CBS Films has optioned screen rights, and here is a statement regarding the project:
“As is clear from the wild success of the game, Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal know how to exceed their audience’s expectations by engineering incredible worlds,” CBS Films co-president Terry Press said. “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.”
“As the millions of fans who have played the Deus Ex games for more than a decade will tell you, these games catapult you into a universe that is stimulating, engaging and relevant,” said Phil Rogers, president/CEO of Square Enix Europe. “We’re firm believers in building strong partnerships and so we’re thrilled to be working with CBS Films on bringing the unique Deus Ex experience to the big screen.” EVP Production Maria Faillace and Creative Executive Alex Ginno are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
So, what do you think of this news? Are you a fan of the game, and are you looking forward to this adaptation?
