According to an article in the LA Times, CBS Films have optioned rights to bring the futuristic, cyberpunk universe to life on the big screen. Its also mentioned in the article that it will be hard to create a film based off this game because of how the game offered players the opportunity to make their own choices in-game which ultimately reflected each player with different experiences.
In a statement, CBS Films Co-President Terry Press pledged to work closely with the Eidos-Montreal development studio that produced “Deus Ex: Human Revolution.” CBS Films plans to base its movie largely on the story of “Human Revolution”, which means we could see a possible trilogy if the studio decides to move ahead with the development in that way.
Human Revolution, the most recent title in the Deus Ex franchise, dropped last year in August. Developed by Eidos-Montreal and published by Square Enix, the game followed Adam Jensen, a mechanically enhanced man with augmentations who gets caught in a web of political intrigue in a world where corporations have become more powerful than governments.
