Variety has the exclusive on the story, Michael Bay has signed on to develop “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon” along side Ubisoft into a potential film franchise at Warner Bros.
The “Ghost Recon” games revolve around a fictional unit of the U.S. Army Special Forces that essentially operates as the President’s private army, using the latest technology to infiltrate and take down threats around the world without leaving any traces behind that they exist.
Ubisoft wanted to work with Bay “because he is a master at action movies,” Baronnet said. Bay is currently directing “Transformers 4″ for Paramount.
According to Variety Ubisoft is already meeting with screenwriters to tackle “Ghost Recon,” with Bay overseeing its development and possibly looking to direct. The goal is to hire screenwriters later this month and start attaching talent in July. Ubisoft has the rights to use Tom Clancy’s name in the film title.
