Videogame adaptations to film don’t always work, but maybe these movies might?

According to Variety, the film division of Ubisoft (yes, they have one) plans to  bring Watch Dogs, Far Cry and Rabbids to a theater near you. 

With Ubisoft’s trio of movie propositions, the publisher aims to maintain creative control over its film projects, which means Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet will hire the writers, directors and actors, and choose the studios Ubisoft wants to work with. So if anyone is to blame for a bad Ubisoft game-inspired movie, it isn’t the director. 

Not much is known about these films, except that Baronnet has said that they will feature all-new stories and not pull directly from the games.

“These are not adaptations, We will create a brand new story. Always.”

Additionally it was revealed that Michael Bay will be directing Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon. Baronnet also said the video game company wanted Bay as director because “he is a master at action movies.” 

Ubisoft Motion Pictures has already set up big-screen adaptations of Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell at New Regency Pictures, which in total amounts to 6 Ubisoft movies.
