Ubisoft isn't exactly new to the idea of translating their beloved frachises to the big screen, with an Assassin's Creed movie in the works with Michael Fassbender, and a Splinter Cell flick with award-winner Tom Hardy (best known as "Bane" in The Dark Knight Rises). Now in a report with the LA Times, Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet has said that he is putting together a pitch for a movie based on the Ghost Recon games.
Ghost Recon isn't a series one would associate with characters bogged down in backstory, and has very few characters that are memorable or well-known to the gaming fanbase. However, the movie will need to show squads of soldiers using "near-future" technology in order to remain somewhat consistant with it's game counterpart.
Alongside Ubisoft's Big Screen aspirations, the company continues work on it's young-adult television series based on the Raving Rabbids franchise, which releases later in 2013.
