Ghost Recon film being written by 'Y: The Last Man' screenwriters

Ubisoft Motion Pictures and Warner Bros. have hired screenwriters Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia to put together the script for the Ghost Recon film the companies are working on, reports Variety.

Federman and Scaia have a great deal of television experience, having worked on shows such as Jericho and Human Target, and they're also the writers behind the screenplays for Sony Pictures' upcoming Zorro reboot and New Line Cinema's film based on the graphic novel Y: The Last Man.

Warner Bros. and Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the video game publisher's film and television division, announced this past June that Michael Bay is working on the Ghost Recon movie. His role on the project remains unclear; he hasn't yet signed on to direct it, or anything beyond the fourth Transformers movie, Age of Extinction, which will hit theaters next June. According to Variety, the companies want to get a Ghost Recon screenplay ready soon, so they can show it to Bay and try to get him to direct the film.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures, a branch of Ubisoft designed to extend the publisher's brands into film and television while retaining creative control, is also producing movies based on Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell and Watch Dogs.
