The untitled Deus Ex film will be produced by Roy Lee (The Departed, The Ring) and Adrian Askarieh (Hitman). John P. Middleton, who is working on a number of upcoming films, including supernatural horror movie 7500, will serve as executive producer.

CBS Films is also working with Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal on the project.

"No one knows Human Revolution like the team that created it and we look forward to working with them from day one to make a film adaptation worthy of the Deus Ex name," said CBS Films co-president Terry Press.

A director for the Deus Ex movie was not announced, nor were any cast members. For more on Deus Ex: Human Revolution, check out GameSpot's review.
