Square Enix has filed a trademark application on Feb. 26, 2013, for “Deus Ex: Human Defiance”. This trademark application would cover games and films, among other things. Square Enix has not announced a follow-up to 2011's “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”, though the company is working with CBS Films on a “Deus Ex” movie.
Helmed by the director of “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”, Scott Derrickson, the movie was announced in July and currently has no title. CBS Films is working with Square Enix and developer Eidos Montreal on the project. It’s assumed that the film will follow the events of the recent video game, “Deus Ex: Human Revolution”, although the director and co-writer said recently that they are taking inspiration from films such as “Looper”, “District 9”, and “Inception”. They’ve stated that they want to make a cyberpunk movie, not a video game movie, which may help them from falling into the trap that so many video game movies fall into.
“Deus Ex: Human Revolution” released in 2011, and is available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and OnLive platforms.
