Michael Bay Set To Helm Big Screen Adaptation Of GHOST RECON For Ubisoft And Warner Bros.

Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell aren't the only video games that Ubisoft are bringing to the big screen, and it has today been revealed that their planned adaptation of Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is being developed by Transformers helmer Michael Bay.


Earlier this year, it was revealed that Ubisoft were planning on also bringing Ghost Recon to the big screen alongside Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell. Well, Warner Bros. and the video game studio have now chosen Transformers director Michael bay to develop the franchise for them, with an eye to direct the movie as well. The hunt is now on for a writer and while Bay will oversee its development through his Platinum Dunes Productions banner, he WILL direct if he likes the script handed in to the studio. They start putting the cast together next month. Bay is currently hard at work on Transformers 4, but Jean Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, said they chose him because "because he is a master at action movies" As for the plot, he added: "These guys don’t belong to any specific organization. They’re in the field where the U.S. troops are not supposed to be. It’s a small team with very strong personalities and very specific skill sets. They’re using weapons nobody knows about but it’s very grounded. It’s not sci-fi." More than 24 million Ghost Recon games have sold since its debut in 2001.
