Variety are reporting that Michael Bay is planning on developing Ubisoft’s ‘Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon’ into a potential film franchise at Warner Bros. Pictures, with an eye to direct. The project would mark the first time Bay has worked with the studio, after previously producing and helming films primarily with Disney, Sony, DreamWorks and Paramount. The ‘Ghost Recon’ video games revolve around a fictional unit of the U.S. Army Special Forces that essentially operates as the President’s private army, using the latest technology to infiltrate and take down threats around the world without leaving any traces behind that they exist.
“These guys don’t belong to any specific organization,” Jean Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “They’re in the field where the U.S. troops are not supposed to be. It’s a small team with very strong personalities and very specific skill sets. They’re using weapons nobody knows about but it’s very grounded. It’s not sci-fi.” Ubisoft wanted to work with Bay “because he is a master at action movies,” Baronnet said. Michael Bay is currently shooting ‘Transformers 4′ for Paramount.
Showcasing lots of new footage from the film, Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the following three TV spots for ‘The Lone Ranger.’ A top-notch cast has been assembled for the film, with Armie Hammer (The Social Network) taking on the role of the titular character, Johnny Depp playing Tonto, and the likes of Ruth Wilson, William Fichtner, Helena Bonham Carter, James Badge Dale, Barry Pepper, Tom Wilkinson and James Frain co-starring. The film, which takes place in 1869, is directed by Gore Verbinski for Walt Disney Pictures/Jerry Bruckheimer Films. ‘The Lone Ranger’ marks Verbrinski and Depp’s fifth collaboration after the first trio of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movies and the Oscar-winning ‘Rango.’
The film is described as “a thrilling adventure infused with action and humor, in which the famed masked hero is brought tolife through new eyes. Native American spirit warrior Tonto (Johnny Depp) recounts the untold tales that transformed John Reid (Armie Hammer), a man of the law, into a legend of justice—taking the audience on a runaway train of epic surprises and humorous friction as the two unlikely heroes must learn to work together and fight against greed and corruption.” ‘The Lone Ranger’ has been pencilled in for a July 3rd release in the US and a August 9th release in the UK. The production details and official synopsis for ‘The Lone Ranger’ can be read below.
