    I haven't seen either of his films but this seems like a mammoth undertaking in comparison.

    You're telling me. I loved this game so he better not screw it up. This is another title that could provide compelling and emotional storytelling with socio-political subtext. :awesome:

    The live-action trailers for the promotional aspect of the game were outstanding and startling. Who knows? It'd probably scare off a portion of the population considering augmentations in the future.

    Don't **** it up! :argh:

    Great. A ****** director doing a film adaption of a great game.

    This should turn out well.

    Expect this to be development hell for a long time.

    As long as the actor can do a slight Eastwood growl, we're straight. I like how his undercover associate in the game pokes fun at that in his voice.

    The game was already really cinematic, if they can adapt the feel of the game properly...has a lot of potential. Derrickson is pretty good but since he hasn't really covered this kind of subject matter, it's tough to say how it'll go.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Ethan Hawke got cast in this. He looks the part and the director worked with him on Sinister.

    I read a Deus Ex movie script once. What was odd about it is that the writer opted to completely write the script in the first person perspective of the protagonist. The storyline from what I could tell was based on one of the earlier games in the series.

    I don't think shooting a movie from first person perspective 100% of the time could really work.

    DOOM tried it for one sequence. DOOM flopped though.

    Which was made under Fox .
    This was before they saw the light with X - Men First Class and Planet of the APes

    Edit : Not saying Derrickson is good a director per se , just that one has to consider the "Fox" factor as well :cwink:

    Oh, that makes sense. It's a total Rothman film. 80 minutes, set in the Fox Forrest.

    I only ever played the first Deus Ex game, never completed it though, but it had a good storyline and I always thought it would be a movie.

    Not sure if thats the case with the new game but I hope its good.
