Predators Screenwriter to Write Deus Ex Film

4 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

CBS Films has hired Predators screenwriter Michael Finch to write the screenplay for their big screen adaptation of the hit cyberpunk video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The first script was written by Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill. Derrickson was supposed to direct the movie as well, but dropped out after Marvel hired him to direct Doctor Strange

Square Enix introduced the game in 2000, and the story is set in the near future, when dramatic advances in human augmentation have triggered a technological renaissance. The protagonist, an ex-swat security specialist named Adam Jensen, must embrace mechanical augments in order to unravel a global conspiracy.

Predators was an ok film with a mediocre script, but maybe Finch will be the right fit for this. The video game has a great story concept, and it has a lot of potential to make a very cool movie. I wonder who they'll bring in to replace Derrickson. »

Watch: Pierce Brosnan is Tough in Full 'The November Man' Trailer

6 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"You know we use to call you? The November Man. Because after you passed through, nothing lived." After being James Bond for four films, Pierce Brosnan is back in action mode in The November Man. We've already seen a teaser trailer for the film, and now the theatrical trailer shows off even more of the action thriller. While the plot seems generic, there's still something about this that seems appealing. Maybe it's just having Brosnan in this kind of role again at an older age, not unlike Liam Neeson. The supporting characters leave something to be desired, but that doesn't seem like it's ruining anything all that much. Watch below! Here's the full trailer for Roger Donaldson's The November Man, originally from Apple: The November Man is directed by Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job, Thirteen Days) and written by Michael Finch (Predators) and Karl Gajdusek (Oblivion), based on a »

Deus Ex movie: new writer in, director out

19 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Predators writer Michael Finch joins the Deus Ex movie, as Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson drops out...

News

There has been a couple of signifcant changes in personnel for the still-in-development movie of the Deus Ex videogame series.

Firstly, Michael Finch, who previously penned Predators, has boarded the project to work on a script. Whether he will pick up the previous screenplay from C Robert Cargill and Scott Derrickson remains to be seen.

However, Derrickson was also attached to direct, and somewhat inevitably, that's no longer the case. Instead, his next two years at least are going to be spent bringing Marvel's Doctor Strange to the screen.

There's no word yet on who's going to replace Derrickson in the director's chair. Given the strength and depth of the source material, we remain cautiously optimistic over the Deus Ex movie though. When it gets a bit closer to actual production, we'll let you know. »

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.”

"Predators" Scribe Hops Onto "Deus Ex" Film

22 July 2014 5:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Predators" and upcoming "Hitman: Agent 47" writer Michael Finch has been hired to work on the script for the film adaptation of acclaimed video game series "Deus Ex" at CBS Films.

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.

Finch takes over from "Sinister" scribes Scott Derrickson and Robert Cargil. Scott Derrickson was originally attached to direct but his commitments to "Doctor Strange" now prevent that.

Deus Ex Adaptation Nabs Predators Writer Michael Finch

22 July 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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.

The November Man Teaser Trailer

11 June 2014 5:21 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Pierce Brosnan is up this year for the entry in the older, action gentleman’s club, and the ex-Bond is a spy again. The November Man, if the trailer is to be believed, packs a lot of action into the story, and finds Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) sucked back into his life as a spy so that he can protect a witness. Naturally, part of the problem protecting her is that there may be a mole, and Devereaux doesn’t know who to trust.

This one hits on August 27th, and may be taking a chance there. Certain other movies with similarities to this one have proven they can perform well, but the tail end of summer competition might be fierce.

At any rate, I liked Brosnan as Bond, and he should be able to pull off a great turn here. I am getting a little bored of the generics of the plot synopsis, »
