Ubisoft Planning Far Cry, Watch Dogs And Rabbids Feature Films

far cry

Ubisoft Motion Pictures, the silver screen sidebar to the French video game company, already have three movies set up: Assassin’s Creed with Michael Fassbender, Splinter Cell with Tom Hardy and Ghost Recon with Michael Bay.

Now, they’ve told Variety, they’re ready to start development on the next wave. That’s before even a single clapperboard has been… er… clapped on the set of the first slate.

All being well, though, this will mean feature-film versions of Far Cry, the Rayman spin-off Rabbids characters and the as-yet unreleased Watch Dogs.

At the moment, no talent is attached to any of the films, and all Ubisoft are saying is that they’ll retain control of the development process, paying for scripts themselves, and only partner with studios later. Apparently, these scripts will be original, and not adapt the games’ specific story lines.

The Rabbids plan, distinct from the pseudo-interactive TV show that popped up at E3, are for a Smurfs-style blend of live action and CG characters.

Ubisoft intended to trail each of their movies with long marketing campaigns, running as much as eighteen months ahead of release. Shouldn’t be too long until we start seeing Assassin’s Creed material popping up, then, even while there’s still no director attached, let alone production having begun.

Here’s a trailer for the Watch Dog game, due in November. The idea is, remember, that Ubisoft will adapt this into a feature but only loosely.
