Ubisoft’s entertainment division continues to roll forward like a juggernaut, and it has announced another film projects is in the works. Ubisoft has announced that Michael Bay and Warner Bros. Pictures will collaborate with Ubisoft Motion Pictures on developing of a feature length Ghost Recon film.
The director of Armageddon and Transformers, and the production company behind countless films including Man of Steel and Lord of the Rings, will help create the film based on Ubisoft’s popular series of modern military stealth and shooter games.
“Having one of Hollywood’s boldest feature film directors attached to bringing Ghost Recon to the big screen is a dream come true for us,” Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet said in the announcement. “And with Warner Bros. unmatched track record of successfully producing, marketing and distributing big movies from the industry’s top talents, we think this project has huge potential.”
Ubisoft proved that Ghost Recon makes great popcorn-munching material with the 2012 short film Ghost Recon Alpha. The short film follows a group of elite “Ghost” soldiers on a mission to infiltrate a Russian depot, and it acted as a prequel to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers. It was produced by Ubisoft and Little Minx, a company under Ridley Scott & Associates. Ubisoft Motion Pictures also has an Assassin’s Creed movie in association with Michael Fassbender in the works for a 2015 release, as well as a Splinter Cell film starring Tom Hardy.
