Michael Bay Involved in Ghost Recon Film

Ubisoft's tactical shooter series Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon is going Hollywood. And it's doing that with movie direct Michael Bay of Armageddon and Transformers fame.

"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," said Jean-Julien Baronnet, chief executive officer, Ubisoft Motion Pictures in an official statement.

"And with Warner Bros. unmatched track record of successfully producing, marketing and distributing big movies from the industry’s top talents," Baronnet added, "we think this project has huge potential."

Ubisoft did not specify whether or not the movie would be based on a specific Ghost Recon game.

Often, video games get planned movie versions that don't quite pan out. However, with one of Hollywood's most successful directors attached, a Ghost Recon film could very well happen. For better, worse, or too many explosions.
