Ubisoft Working on Watch_Dogs, Far Cry and Rabbids Films
The publisher’s film division is adding three more projects to production.
Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell and Ghost Recon are already on their way to becoming films, with the former two already casting their main protagonists and the latter being made in association with Warner Bros. and Michael Bay.
Now, Ubisoft Motion Pictures has announced films for Watch_Dogs, Far Cry and the Rabbids. The three films will be packaged into a trio to be pitched for studios while directors and casts are recruited separately.
In a report by Variety, Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet stated this approach was so that “no one can tell us you have to do the movie a certain way.” He also clarified that, “These are not adaptations. We will create a brand new story. Always.”
This of course doesn’t include the Rabbids interactive TV series/video game for Xbox One. Along with these three new announcements, Ubisoft Motion Pictures now has six films in production. Stay tuned for more details on directors and cast members.
