Could Ubisoft Buck the Trend of Bad Video Game Movie Adaptations?

With Ubisoft set to create cinematic adaptations of two of their most popular franchises, Assasin's Creed and Splinter Cell, will these finally be the great video game movies that everyone has been waiting for? DefaultPrime's Lucas discusses how they just might be. (Industry, Ubisoft)

Assassin's Creed is the first game to movie adaptation that features a TRULY complex/thought provoking plot. The premise is even more complex than Inception. I think it will be good.

Yep I agree and I think they could also make at the very least a good popcorn flick with splinter cell.

Honestly, I can't see it failing like the others at all. The story is absolutely perfect for a movie adaption. They can make a movie that is even better than the games with their premise. It doesn't hurt that the lead actor is actually a great fit. But after so many disappointments, it is best to continue to think that directors will always find a way to waste great concepts.

They already started with that horrid prince of persia movie who casts Jake Gyllenhal for anything besides gay cowboys.

That was Disney, from what I understand Ubisoft has their own production company now, so they'll have more say in the production of the films.

Prince of Persia wasn't half bad, even when Disney took certain liberties with the plot & story. Or maybe it was used as a guideline and not an end to all. Who knows?

as for the argument that because the publisher retaining control they'll be better movies, i have to point out that capcom had similar control over the two live action Street Fighter movies, and look how they turned out.

though i do have no doubt ubisoft will do a much better job than capcom did.
