    Ubisoft's movie branch has announced their latest project; a movie adaptation of their recent game, Tom Clancy's The Division. It already has some A-list actors/actresses lined up for the casting as well, including Jessica Chastain (The Martian, The Help, Zero Dark Thirty) and Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Southpaw). Ubisoft Motion Pictures also has upcoming movies based on Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon, Watch_Dogs, and Rabbids franchises in the works.

    I'm surprised that the game basically instantly got a movie adaptation greenlit, since it came out this year. The talent they got for this makes it interesting, but video game movie adaptations have had a really bad history, 9 times out of 10 they suck. Hopefully this won't, for the sake of the actors involved.

    Maybe this will have something the game did not... a story!?

    It's going to suck and be overrated, just like the game

    I don't know nothing about the game, but I do know that Broke Back Mountain aside, Jake Gyllenhaal generally ends up in damn good movies!

    Yeah that movie sucked :rofl2:

    It remains to be seem although even if it is only average bad then it is still an improvement in the world of video game movies.

    Is Prince of Persia considered bad now? Most at the time found it agreeable enough, when I saw thought it a fairly OK film. I would have preferred a proper middle east themed beat 'em up but ultimately found it an inoffensive popcorn film.

    But yeah no story to have to retread to please nobody, an interesting enough setting (though I wonder how much ruined new york will cost to recreate) and Tom Clancy's name floating around the place seems a reasonable basis for a film.

    On Brokeback Mountain I never saw it (didn't seem like my kind of film) but it seems to be fairly well liked on imdb, rotten tomatoes, a variety of awards places and however many years on this is it does not seem to have got much of a backlash or "what were we thinking". It could be that they are wrong and they certainly have been in the past but I have to give it the benefit of the doubt here.

    Broke Back mountain was a good film by Ang Lee (who did Life of Pie) but it was a joke due to the film's premise.


    I was not referring to Prince of Persia but to the division movie. As for the film's quality, I found it ok but that great although it is one of the better video game movies.

    Who needs a story when you can sell a product solely on Hype?

    I know they say a good IP sells regardless, but was The Division ever really a good IP? It had a lot of hype leading up, but that fizzed away rather quickly, and many people have trickled away from the game. I don't know if they're going to be able to sell this off of pure hype:
