Ubisoft Opens Its Own Movie Studio

Variety reports that French developer Ubisoft (Prince of Persia, Assassin’s Creed, Vin Diesel – Wheelman) has established a sub-company, Ubisoft Motion Pictures, that will be in charge of adapting its games into movies.

I’m guessing Ubi isn’t investing hundreds of millions in sets, property, cameras, and such, and this is really more of an administrative thing. Its major franchises are almost certain to be adapted, and if Ubi wants to bring them to the same standards as their games, a serious licensing and oversight body should be formed.

That said, as much as I enjoy Assassin’s Creed, I can’t say I’m looking forward to the movie.
