Michael Bay may direct Ghost Recon movie, new writers found

The big screen take on UbiSoft's Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon videogames enlists the writers of Y: The Last Man...

One of a bunch of movies in the works based on UbiSoft videogames is the big screen take on Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. The project an active one at Warner Bros, and it already was known that Michael Bay was set to produce the movie.

Bay may not only produce, but could quite possibly direct Ghost Recon too, once he's done with Transfomers: Age Of Extinction. The great irony is that the Ghost Recon games have their action moments, but also centre around the fact that all concerned must leave no trace of their intervention. We'd be quite shocked if Michael Bay could even drink a cup of coffee without a bit of slow motion and some loud explosions.

That notwithstanding, two new writers have been brought onto the project to try and fashion a screenplay. And they are Matthew Federman and Stephen Scala. Federman and Scala are currently on screenplay duties for Y: The Last Man and they've also written a script for a possible reboot of the Zorro movies, that Sony is toying with.

No news yet on when Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon will press ahead, but we'll keep you posted...

Bonus! keep him busy on a franchise I have no interest in

Why not get the directors who made the Ghost Recon: Alpha short which came out before GR: Future Soldier? That is how a Ghost Recon movie should be, not with explosions every 20 seconds.

LO-MO EXPLOSIONS BITCHEEEZZZZZZZZZZ

I love the idea of this, they are supposed to be the world's most stealthy soldiers - but for some reason even they can't explain stuff just keeps exploding every-time they go near it - IN SLOW MOTION.
