Bay not confirmed to be directing (yet).
Ubisoft Motion Pictures have announced that they are currently planning a film adaptation of the popular Ghost Recon series in collaboration with director Michael Bay and Warner Bros. Pictures. And before panicking, it hasn’t yet been confirmed if Bay will be directing. Not that there isn’t plenty of time to panic later.
Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet stated that, “Having one of Hollywood’s boldest feature film directors attached to bringing Ghost Recon to the big screen is a dream come true for us. And with Warner Bros.’ unmatched track record of successfully producing, marketing and distributing big movies from the industry’s top talents, we think this project has huge potential.”
That currently make three projects for Ubisoft’s film division including the Splinter Cell film featuring Tom Hardy and Assassin’s Creed, produced by and starring Michael Fassbender. As for the infamous Bay, he is responsible for the Transformers films and is currently working on the next Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film along with Transformers 4.
