The newest voice in children’s entertainment is shrill, British, and very, very square. Thanks to the jaw-dropping success of the videogame Minecraft—a sort of online digital Lego universe in which kids (and more than a few grown-ups) build their own worlds, play in them, and invite their online friends to join them—a 23-year-old former bartender from the south coast of England has become millions of kids’ onscreen Bff.
Operating under the Minecraft alter ego of stampylonghead (a.k.a. Stampy Cat)—a boxy orange character with a la-di-da voice and a rat-a-tat laugh—Joseph Garrett has attracted »

It looks like the next phase of human revolution is about to happen.
CBS Films hired “Predators” writer Michael Finch to pen the screenplay for the video game adaptation of “Deus Ex. He will replace Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, who previously worked on the script and Derrickson is now working on Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.”
The film is taking its inspiration from the Square Enix 2011 game “Deus Ex: Human Revolution.” It focuses on Adam Jensen, a security manager at Sarif Industries who was forced to undergo life-saving surgeries to replace his body with advanced prostheses after a terrorist attack.
Finch worked the 2010’s screenplay of “Predators” that starred Adrien Brody, Topher Grace and Laurence Fishburne. He also contributed to the story for the upcoming films of “The November Man” and “Agent 47.”
It sounds like it’s going be one awesome shoot-them-up movie. »

Set in the near future where human augmentation has triggered a technological renaissance, the story follows a security specialist named Adam Jensen who must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.
Though launched in 2000, the franchise found new life and fans with 2011's "Deus Ex: Human Revolution". That game was not only a big earner but nabbed over 100 industry awards. As a result it will serve as the primary template for the film which Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh are attached to produce.

The Deus Ex movie, adapted from the video game franchise of the same name, now has a new screenwriter. Heat Vision reports that CBS Films and producers Roy Lee and Adrian Askarieh have enlisted Predators screenwriter Michael Finch to work on the screenplay for the pic, which draws mainly from the Deus Ex: Human Revolution game and revolves around an ex-swat security specialist who unravels a global conspiracy after undergoing mechanical augmentation. Sinister scribes Scott Derrickson and Robert Cargil wrote the previous draft of the Deus Ex script when Derrickson was attached to direct, but he's a little busy at the moment as he's gearing up to helm Marvel's Doctor Strange. It's unknown if he'll still be involved in the development of Deus Ex, but clearly CBS Films wants another pass on the script. In addition to Predators, Finch also penned the script for the upcoming video game adaptation Hitman »

Despite its console popularity, Square Enix’s hit title Deus Ex hasn’t exactly raced onto cinema screens since CBS Films grabbed the rights back in 2012, the second time someone has taken a stab at the idea. It’s been through a few drafts and at least one director in Scott Derrickson, but now Predators scribe Michael Finch has been hired to work on the script.The movie will apparently spring from the latest version of the game, Human Revolution, which took the story back to before the first title and introduced security chief Adam Jensen, the first person to receive nanotechnology treatment after an attack on his company leaves him badly injured.This isn’t the first time the game has pinged Hollywood’s radar – Sony’s Columbia arm announced in 2002 that Laura Ziskin would produce a version with Greg Pruss cranking out the script.
