CBS films announced Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) is directing the upcoming Deus Ex film based on the game.

"Deus Ex is a phenomenal cyberpunk game with soul and intelligence,” Derrickson said in a statement. “By combining amazing action and tension with big, philosophical ideas, Deus Ex is smart, ballsy, and will make one hell of a movie."

Deus Ex: Human Revolution will serve as the primary template for the film, CBS says.
