Ubisoft to Release Ghost Recon Film

Ubisoft to Release Ghost Recon Film
Ubisoft has been on a tear adapting their games into film, and now, they have announced that "Ghost Recon" will be next.

Both  "Assassin's Creed" and "Splinter Cell" films will be released starring Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy respectively, and now the the Tom Clancy based game follows suit.  Jean-Julien Baronnet, Ubisoft Motion Pictures unit CEO, said,  "If you look at past adaptations of games to movies, none were done by an integrated gaming company that put a movie structure inside of itself. We're not here to just license and we're not here to produce big movies ourselves. We are really in the middle of it... With so much at stake, it's important we don't give up the DNA of the game, the fundamental pillars. We don't want to make an average movie. We want to make a movie that will serve the brand and make happy the gamers and also the non-gamers. I think it has never been done before, but we can build this bridge."

Ubisoft also said that they will be releasing a cartoon series based on the Rabbids games.

Countdown to the release of Ghost Recon, with the iPhone Movie Countdown Clock App.
