"Far Cry" and "Rabbids" Video Game Movies in the Works

Posted: June 13th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Far Cry" and "Rabbids" Video Game Movies in the WorksSubmit Comment
Ubisoft is already working on big screen adaptations of "Assassin's Creed," starring Michael Fassbender, "Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon," to be directed by Michael Bay, and "Splinter Cell."

And now comes word that the company is making plans to turn three more video game franchise into movies, including "Watch Dogs," "Far Cry" and "Rabbids." Ubisoft will have full control over the projects, which means that it will hire directors, writers and cast before approaching any studios.

Ubisoft will also finance everything. By doing that, "no one can tell us you have to do the movie a certain way," said CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet.

While "Far Cry" and "Rabbids" are already established franchises, "Watchdogs" has yet to be released. It will hit stores on November 19th, but has already generated a significant amount of buzz since last year's E3.

"Rabbids" will be a mix of live-action and CG, similar to "The Smurfs" and "Alvin and the Chipmunks."

"Far Cry" was already turned into a movie back in 2008 with Uwe Boll at the helm. As with all Boll movies, it was far from being successful.

Watch dogs could be good, but rabbids will bomb.

I love this line. What arrogance. Ubisoft doesn't even have a lock on making good games, so what makes them think they have the brains and experience to handle total creative control on films?

Farcry was ok for about 2 hours, while I was drunk, 8 years ago... Never tried its sequels...No way will I consider watching a movie. The other games mentioned I've never even heard of.

Assassins creed should be pretty good though. It has to do with digital mind links or some sh*t, haven't played it in forever.

Film control is scarce to none with anyone. Think of it between knowing their projects will be in theatres or something else's bastardized sequel twice removed. You don't have see either but the choice to peace of mind is yours.

WATCH_DOGS looks to be like a video game version of Person of Interest, which I enjoy because it is a lot like The Equalizer.

Now I know that WATCH_DOGS has been in development prior to when Person of Interest was in production, but it was out of the gate first so I wonder how a WATCH_DOGS film would really be able to differentiate that much.

UbiSoft is jumping the gun a bit with WATCH_DOGS anyways because the f*cking game is not even out yet and there is no guarantee it will be a huge success.

If anything, Ubi needs to focus on films of it's already successful franchises like Splinter Cell which has Tom Hardy as Sam Fisher and Assassin's Creed has Michael Fassbender the last I heard.
