Michael Bay to Develop Ubisoft’s GHOST RECON Film

"Transformers" director Michael Bay may have chosen his next cinematic franchise. The filmmaker, through his Platinum Dunes studio, has signed a deal with Ubisoft to develop a big-screen version of the video game franchise "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon" for Warner Bros. It's also very likely that Bay will direct the movie. For those unfamiliar with the video game, "Ghost Recon" started out in 2001 and it is a tactical shooter in which the player controls a U.S. Army squad of Special Forces soldiers in various Tom Clancy-esque crysis intervention missions, with a large aresenal of hi-tech weapons and gear at their disposal. Several sequels were made, including a free-to-play online game which was released last year. Here is an official statement from Michael Bay about this project:
"Ubisoft’s artistic vision and the Ghost Recon franchise’s core tenets convinced me that we could build something special together. It’s a unique title with very cool components – including a huge global canvas with which we will create an amazing film."
