Scott Derrickson to write and direct adaptation

The film adaptation of Deus Ex: Human Revolution will be directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose), CBS Films announced today. He'll also be writing the screenplay alongside C. Robert Cargill, who he worked with previously on Sinister.

"By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie," said Derrickson. "Cargill and I can't wait to bring it to the big screen."

Horror isn't the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Deus Ex, but there's a lot to work with given the source material -- here's hoping we end up with a halfway decent movie. Between this news and the "Terminator" prosthetic arm video that recently made the rounds, I've been thinking way too much about our cybernetic future lately.
