Ubisoft already has a few movie projects in development, namely Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender and Splinter Cell, starring Tom Hardy, but won't be the end of the game company's filmic aspirations. Seems that Ghost Recon is next on the docket for a game-to-movie translation.
A report in the LA Times states that Jean-Julien Baronnet, the chief executive of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, is "putting together a pitch for a movie based on the Ghost Recon games about a special operations military squad.
The Ghost Recon games have never had extraordinarily fleshed-out characters or backstories. This means a film based on the franchise would need only to include a handful of soldiers kitted out with near-future military technology to remain consistent with the series.
Ubisoft had actually produced its own take on a live-action Ghost Recon movie, releasing a 23-minute short film earlier this year as a way to promote the release of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
In addition to its movie projects, Ubisoft continues to work on a young-adult TV series based on the Rabbids franchise, planned for release in 2013.
