Movies for Ubisoft’s three biggest franchises are now in the works at the newly christened Ubisoft Motion Pictures. 3D films for Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell, and Ghost Recon are in production, though work is so preliminary for the films that they don’t have scripts yet.
In addiction, Ubisoft Motion Pictures is also creating a CG miniseries based around Raving Rabbids, the Rayman spinoff. Variety reports that this series will be made of 78 seven-minute episodes, which is pretty awesome.
I’d like to look forward to these movies with something other than contempt and fear, but video game movies don’t have the best track record. Most of them are just bad – not even good/bad that means you can enjoy it in some sort of altered state. Maybe these movies will be good/bad? That’s about the best I’ll hope for, though.
