Ubisoft Developing Three More Of Its Games Into Movies

Watch Dogs, Far Cry, Rabbids Movies coming to a theater near you.

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.

    They already tried Far Cry. It ended up an awful direct to DVD flop.

    That was Ubisofts?!?!?! lol I have to watch it now. I wasn't sure. I've seen it on Netflix, I believe it's instant play. I've been putting it off because I wasn't sure it was actually intended to follow the game or if it was something with the same name.

    I'm totally gonna watch it now. =p

    Watch Dogs could make a great movie! All of these could. =)

    After Blood Dragon, I have a whole lot of faith they would make a sweet movie. Besides, that 2008 attempt was Uwe Boll.
