Deus Ex Movie Interview

CraveOnline has a short Q&A with director Scott Derrickson and co-writer C. Robert Cargill on the Deus Ex movie that's currently in the works, and while it's too early to get any solid detail, we get some insight in the direction they're going for. Here's a snip:
In Deus Ex, are you guys focusing on Human Revolution, or the original? There's so much story to go with.

C. Robert Cargill: Human Revolution.

Do you have a philosophy on how you're approaching it? Because basically every video game movie has sucked before.

C. Robert Cargill: Yeah. Yeah, the chief philosophy is we're not making a video game movie, we're making a cyberpunk movie. We've taken a look at what's worked in video games and what hasn't, and really what we've broken down is what we think the audience really wants, [what] the audience that loves Deus Ex is going to want to see out of a Deus Ex movie. And it's not a rehashing of the game. What they want to see is, they want to see elements of the game that they love, but they want to see things that they hadn't quite seen in the game, that the game didn't allow them to see. So it's really allowed us to expand upon the things that happened in the game, and the game has such a great cinematic story to begin with that those elements are very easy to extract. But really, at its core, we just keep telling each other, (We're not making a video game movie, we're making a cyberpunk movie.) And Scott and I are such big cyberpunk fans from way back in the day that that just really charges us up. Because that's what's so great about Deus Ex to begin with, is it really gets cyberpunk. I Eidos Montreal really understood the nature of cyberpunk and made (the) cyberpunk game, and it is just fantastic, and we've just had a great time adapting it.

I'm praying this is good but for now I remain healthily skeptical.

Thanks, GameInformer.
