Deus Ex: Human Defiance “Still Alive”, Script Modified for Upcoming Games
Various rewrites are delaying the upcoming film based on Human Revolution.
Deus Ex: Human Defiance, a film based on Eidos Montreal’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution, is still in the works according to director Scott Derrickson.
Speaking to IGN in a recent interview (transcribed by Polygon), Derrickson called the script “tricky” but assured everyone that it’s “still alive”.
“The script that we wrote was clearly based on the Human Revolution game. We worked hard with the game company to get aspects of the game that we knew would be important to fans of the game and the world and all of that.
“The upcoming game, the progression of games, there’s a little bit that filtered into the script, but not a lot.”
Nonetheless, Derrickson finds protagonist Adam Jensen interesting enough to continue pushing for the project. Eidos Montreal in the meantime is prepping Deus Ex: Universe, the next series of games likely to released for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Stay tuned for more details.
