Deus Ex Film Will Be More Cyberpunk Than Videogame
For those of you who’ve only ever heard this videogame series’ name being bandied about, the Deus Ex games are really cyberpunk themed action-RPGs. The first game, titled simply as Deus Ex, made waves in the gaming world when it was released in the year 2000. It had sold more than one million copies by 2009. Three years later, the equally lauded Deus Ex: Invisible War was released. The latest iteration, Deux Ex: Human Revolution, debuted in 2011 to critical acclaim.
And now there’s going to be a movie made for the series. But it won’t just be a videogame movie!
“We’ve taken a look at what’s worked in video games and what hasn’t, and really what we’ve broken down is what we think the audience really wants, the audience that loves Deus Ex is going to want to see out of a Deus Ex movie,” said C. Robert Cargill, who was signed to assist with the directing and writing of the film.
Fans want to see “elements of the game that they love, but they want to see things that they hadn’t quite seen in the game, that the game didn’t allow them to see,” he added. And so the Deus Ex movie will be a cyberpunk movie, not a video game movie.
The film will be based on Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It is still undated.
