[Destructoid] Hollywood perplexed by Ubisoft control over AC film - Page 8

I think the number of failed game to film attempts just goes to show the lack of a decent plot in most games. The fact that it is an interactive experience diverts our attention away from the fact that the story lines aren't as good as they would need to be in a good film or book. Just imagine the first Assassin's Creed game as a film, having had no game previously. It would not get good reviews with such a far-fetched plot. Scientists discover that DNA somehow stores memories and have learned how to watch these memories? Two huge advances in science that we just have to take for granted even though the concept of DNA storing memory is utterly ridiculous. It's just so absurd.

Hollywood studios haven't exactly helped themselves though with making films about such games as Mario in which the only plot is "princess kidnapped, save princess."

Wrong. Hollywood crapped up the game to movies. Most game to movies that are made by the company are epic. Not all though. Its not a far fetched plot, its all about the war on Assassins Vs Templars. You mad bro?

If you were to say that this is a far fetched plot, how about inception? Going into somebodies mind and going 3 levels deep to plant a thought and not knowing if the ending is real or a dream. Hows that for far fetched? Or how about the movie Avatar. Tall blue creatures on a distant planet being murdered for a made up element called Unobtanium.

BTW to all the others, if you haven't seen it, watch AC: Lineage. Its awesome smile.gif it takes place between AC1 and 2 IIRC. If Ubisoft can do that, imagine what the AC movie will look like.

It's totally understandable how Ubisoft feels about this. A lot of video game movies always turn out to be bad or okay. The only video game movie I like so far is Silent Hill, Mortal Kombat (for lawls), Street Fighter (for lawls too), and Prince of Persia. I find it funny how Hollywood is so dumbfounded why Ubisoft wants control. Hollywood is so crappy these days that they are just looking for a quick buck because they know how popular Assassin's Creed is.

Besides, a CGI movie like the trailers would be insanely cool, despite how expensive it'll be. It will be great fan service since they can just get back the voice actors for the games if they decide to make a movie about Desmond, Altair, and Ezio. Just like the Prince of Persia movie, I think an AC movie will just use some game elements and make a whole new story with a descendant and an ancestor.

Max Payne. Seriously, they thought that they could make a movie as good as the games. This level of egotism is why Ubi is being so "unreasonable," and it gladdens me that at least one studio is keeping their head about them and not worrying if they can't get a studio to butcher their IP. Marvel and DC seemed to have discovered this with their comic book properties, here's hoping more genre companies decide to put the suits in Hollywierd in their place.
