Ubisoft will never stop surprising us, revealing more and more new horizons. Just recently we have informed you that Ubisoft Motion Pictures company will shoot a film based on Assassin's Creed, and today we want to tell you that it is planning to do more movies based on its three projects: Watch Dogs, Far Cry and Rabbids.
For this moment French Ubisoft company has six films under development (including of course three new ones) - Assassin's Creed, Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Far Cry, Watch Dogs and Rabbids.
According to CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures - Jean-Julien Baronnet, the company isn’t going (as it usually happens in the cinema industry), to adapt the games’ stories for movies. "These are not adaptations, we will create a brand new story. Always." Moreover, Ubisoft is planning to hire the directors, screenwriters and cast for all three projects before choosing a studio which will shoot the movies later. The same approach has been taken by company for those projects that are already under active development (Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed).
If Watch Dogs (which, by the way, has to be released only in November 2013), and Far Cry are planned to be feature length films shot in Hollywood, Rabbids should be a live-action film (like "Alvin and the Chipmunks" and "The Smurfs") starred by the funny rabbits.
As for future films based on the other company's games, Jean-Julien Baronnet has told that the company does not plan such ones because "not every game will make a good movie, and for others it may be too early to turn into a movie."
