Paris-based Ubisoft Motion Pictures is planning to make 3D features based on several of its top video game franchises: Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon.
Assassin's Creed is an epic action-adventure, which centers on the conflict between Templars and Assassins, two secret organizations with different ideologies who have influenced, according to the game, most major historical events.
An action drama in the vein of The Bourne Identity, Splinter Cell centers on an elite secret agent fighting world terrorism and struggling to protect his daughter.
Ghost Recon is a tech-driven war actioner set in the near future, and follows a secret, elite team of soldiers fighting for world peace with cutting-edge military technology.
"Our strategy is not to diversify but to bolster the appeal of our franchises -- that's why we want to make sure our films will reflect the brands accurately and consolidate our fan base while expanding beyond the games' primary target audience," Jean de Rivieres said.
Jean-Julien Baronnet added, "We want to keep ownership, retain control over the film content, and we're open to work with studios on the development of our projects, and eventually collaborate on the pre-casting, pre-budget and script."
Ubisoft Motion Pictures hopes to have a script ready by the end of the year.
