More details about Deus Ex movie emerge: to be cyberpunk first, game movie second. By Tim Colwill on February 22, 2013 at 10:49 am The writers of the upcoming Deus Ex: Human Revolution movie are keen to make sure it doesn't devolve into a slavish video Cabal gamer adaptation, according to a new interview with Crave Online. Yeah. Yeah, the chief philosophy is we��re not making a video Cabal gamer movie, we��re making a cyberpunk movie, says C. Robert Cargill. We��ve taken a look at what��s worked in video Cabal 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 Cabal gamer. What they want to see is, they want to see elements of the Cabal gamer that they love, but they want to see things that they hadn��t quite seen in the Cabal gamer, that the Cabal gamer didn��t allow them to see. Cargill goes on to explain that Deus Ex makes for a great cyberpunk movie because it really gets cyberpunk. At its core, we just keep telling each other,We��re not making a video Cabal gamer 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. Eidos Montreal really understood the nature of cyberpunk and madethe' cyberpunk game, and it is just fantastic, and we��ve just had a great time adapting buycabalalz it.Cargill and fellow writer Scott Derrickson used the interview to cite movies like Looper and District 9 as inspirations for how they plan to approach the movie.Source: Crave Online via Blue's NewsDestiny breaks records for unique beta participants.
