Ubisoft Working on Ghost Recon Movie Pitch
Two movie deals aren't enough for Ubisoft. That's why Ubisoft Motion Picture CEO Baronnet is working on a pitch for Ghost Recon.
Ubisoft's made it clear in the past year that it's serious about its venture into moviemaking. It's managed to land Hollywood stars Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy for the lead roles in the upcoming Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell movies, respectively. Most impressively, Ubisoft is refusing to hand over its reigns on creative control to Hollywood, which is what made videogame movie flops like DOOM and Super Mario Bros.so absolutely awful in the first place.
And apparently, two ambitious videogame movies aren't enough for Ubisoft Motion Picture CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet. In an interview with the LA Times over Ubisoft's recent moviemaking ventures, Baronnet revealed that he was formulating a pitch for a Ghost Recon movie.
With some of Ubisoft's biggest intellectual properties in line for a transmedia makeover, gamers will have to cross their fingers and pray that Ubisoft's venture into cinema won't be something absolutely groan-worthy.
