Watch: 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution' Gets Impressive Fan Film Short
There's already a feature film adaptation of the Square Enix video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution in the works with director Scott Derrickson and his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill behind the project. But since we've yet to hear any updates about the film since 2012 (Derrickson has been busy with Deliver Us from Evil with Eric Bana), Moe Charif and his Decode Films production team decided to make their own 12-minute short fan film, and while the action leave something to be desired, the production quality is great, and it's something cool for fans of the game to sink their teeth into while the real film develops. Watch it!
For those who don't know, Deus Ex: Human Revolution follows an ex-SWAT specialist who’s been handpicked to oversee the defensive needs of one of America’s most experimental biotechnology firms. After a militaristic team breaks in and kills scientists working there, Jensen, badly wounded during the attack, must be mechanically augmented to survive and pursue the culprits. The above short also includes Jensen’s relationship with his ex-girlfriend Megan Reed and a female assassin named Yelena Fedorova. Can we expect something like this in the feature film version? We'll keep you posted on that front. Cool short?
