The movie based on the third Deus Ex game, announced this summer, now has a director: Deadline reports that it'll be Scott Derrickson, the guy who directed... the supernatural horror movie Sinister (62% on RottenTomatoes). And... the supernatural horror movie The Exorcism Of Emily Rose (44% on RottenTomatoes). I guess someone must have asked for this.
Hey, did you hear? The guy that directed Atonement just adapted Anna Karerina. Completely unrequested! The outrage of taking a story from one medium into another. I am livid here. Livid.
Seriously, though, those movies are OK and Human Revolution is cinematic enough. I am entirely unaffected by this news one way or another and will judge the film in its own merits. I'm an extremist like that.
I swear, 'Taku, my least favourite thing on this site is these awkward moments when you guys assume nerd outrage about entirely banal news tidbits. It creates this weird feeling that you guys are this slightly older man struggling to fit in a club and not quite pulling it off.
