Jean Baronnet, the chief executive of Ubisoft Motion Pictures promises that things will be different with the video game movies they create. It's a new year and let's see what 2013 will hold. So far they're working on an Assassin's Creed movie, Splinter Cell movie, and newly mentioned that they're throwing ideas around for Ghost Recon.
"If you look at past adaptations of games to movies, none were done by an integrated gaming company that put a movie structure inside of itself," Baronnet stated. "We're not here to just license and we're not here to produce big movies ourselves. We are really in the middle of it."
Michael Fassbender is starring in the Assassin's Creed movie and Tom Hardy, also Bane in The Dark Knight Rises will be starring in the Splinter Cell movie. Ubisoft is making sure things work out just right. They've made their connections in the industry, they're getting together actors, and they've got the funding for sure. Hopefully you're right Baronnet and that 2013 is a good year for video game movies.
"With so much at stake, it's important we don't give up the DNA of the game, the fundamental pillars," Baronnet said.
