The lights are on
Ubisoft has been on a push to turn many of its properties into big budget films. Splinter Cell, Assassins' Creed, and Watch Dogs are all in various degrees of development, but Ubisoft isn't stopping there; next up on the list is Ghost Recon.
According to the LA Times, Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive of Ubisoft's Motion Pictures unit, is currently putting together a pitch for a movie based on the Ghost Recon franchise. Ubisoft's Ghost Recon games haven't always had the most involved stories, so it will be interesting to see how the company evolves this property into a film, and which Hollywood production company might pick it up. But for a glimpse of what a future film might look like check out this 25-minute prequel film put together for the release of Ghost Recon Future Soldier.

Huh. A movie I'll never watch, of a game I never had an interest in playing. I'd rather see someone putting in the effort for a Borderlands movie than something like this. Though, Claptrap would likely end up being a dorky human and not the awesome robot he is.
I feel like trying to push Watch Dogs into being made into a movie is kind of strange since the game hasn't actually come out yet. The other properties are some of their flagship titles so that makes sense, but we really don't know how good Watch Dogs will be yet. It does look amazing and I can't wait to play it, but it seems a tad bit early to start working on a film adaptation in my opinion.
I love war movies... HaHa my favorite is Saving Private Ryan. This movie will be interesting knowing its based off a game.
Would hardly stand apart from any other war movie though. Would have to just be "Ghost Recon" in name only since the rest wouldn't really matter. Would it still be "Tom Clancy's". . . whatever?
Ooh I'd love to see prince of pers.... Oh... Yeah... :\
Best of luck to them, and hopefully the movie doesn't suck too bad.
