Columbia Pictures has recently announced a that they have the rights to produce a new Sci-fi action film based on the popular PC and Mac game Deus Ex from Eidos Interactive. The movie will be produced by Laura Ziskin who recently produced Spider-Man for the studio.
Like the game, the film will be set in the year 2052 as the world confronts the threat of a world killing disease, an economic collapse and the threat of global terrorism. The world's hope falls on JC Denton, a highly-trained, 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 overthrowing it.
"With the brand awareness of the title and a fantastically conceived hero at the core of this film, we feel we can develop Deus Ex as a potential franchise for the studio," said Peter Schlessel, President of Production for Columbia Pictures.
"Eidos is thrilled to partner with Columbia," said Eidos Vice President of Marketing, Paul Baldwin. "Deus Ex is one of our top franchises, and we look forward to seeing it come to life with a top of the line studio like Columbia."
