Does anyone have any info on the upcoming Deus Ex movie? like who's going to be in it? or when it's going to be realesed? I'll have a look for more info if ne1 wants me too, but it'll be interesting to see what is fact and wot isn't, as they say. Flametongue.
The action takes place in the year 2052 as the world confronts the threat of a terrible disease, economic collapse and global terrorism. JC Denton is a highly-rained, nano-technology enhanced counter-terrorist who is sworn to protect the government. But as he unravels one conspiracy after another, he must decide between continuing to serve the government or overthrow it.
It'll probably be a flop.
Mmhmm. My guess is that they'll take the typical film-of-a-game pitfall and focus more on the action than the story- style over substance. It's the same thing in any game-based movie you'd care to think of, and despite the fact that Deus Ex is a cerebral game, I doubt the producers will break the mould of disappointment.
Aye, and how could you base a film on Deus Ex, which has several different ways of playing the levels? You would have to go for a set path.
I heard they are also thinking of producing films for Half-Life and Grand Theft Auto!!! :D
Kool! That would be amazing wouldn't it, if Tommy Vercetti was the main character! But it would have to be an 18......
[color=black]Games-to-Film: Eidos Update[/color]
[color=black]The latest on Fear Effect and Deus Ex.[/color]
[color=black]February 03, 2004[/color][color=black] - Game developer Eidos has released an update on a number of their game-to-film adaptations in development. [/color]
[color=black]First and foremost, the makers of Tomb Raider have optioned the Fear Effect series of action-adventure games to Paramount Pictures. Uwe Boll, director of House of the Dead and the forthcoming Alone in the Dark adaptation, is helming the project. He says, "Fear Effect is a fantastic game with a dark story. I want to create an action film in the vein of Charlie's Angels but portray its sexy heroines Hana and Rain in a much edgier fashion." [/color]
[color=black]The developer has also sold the movie rights for Deus Ex to Columbia Pictures and producer Laura Ziskin.[/color]
[color=black]Last we heard, screenwriter Greg Pruss was drafting the script. He told IGN that the game's main character, JC Denton, will be "a little bit filthier than he was in the game," and that the film will be somewhat darker than the source material.[/color]
[color=black]Eidos' vice president of marketing, Paul Baldwin says, "We are excited to continue our success of extending our original IP to film. Tomb Raider was highly successful, as will be Deus Ex, and we look forward to Fear Effect continuing this trend."[/color]
