Michael Bay and Warner Bros. set their sights on Ghost Recon movie

Good luck sneaking with all those explosions

Warner Bros. and explosion auteur Michael Bay are the newest recruits in Ubisoft's effort to bring Ghost Recon to the big screen, the publisher announced today.

"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,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of the game publisher's cinematic wing.

No details (such as Bay's specific involvement) were available about the film, though the story would presumably follow the titular untraceable unit, a fictional top-secret unit of the US Special Forces.

It's not Bay's first brush with gaming: In 2011, he directed a trailer for Need for Speed: The Run which can be seen here. No stranger to crossover itself, Ubisoft is currently working on an Assassin's Creed film set for 2015.
