Last year was a great year for video games, and especially Ubisoft. The company experienced continued success with its best-selling games, like Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell, both of which were also announced to receive the big screen treatment. Fortunately for fans of the video game movie genre, Ubisoft has big plans for this venture into film, recently announcing the next big gaming sensation to eventually hit the theaters -- Ghost Recon.

It's no secret that we at ScreenCrush are big into video games, especially when those video games get turned into movies, like with Deus Ex, Mass Effect, God of War and Need for Speed. But what excites us even more is hearing the voices of famous stars in our favorite games.
Video game movies are gaining more momentum as of late, what with the recent progress on the ‘God of War,’ ‘Assassin’s Creed,’ ‘Mass Effect,’ ‘Need for Speed’ and (the latest to be announced) ‘Deus Ex’ film adaptations. While previous video...
Are you ready to find out which video game will be next to get the movie adaptation treatment? Well, look no further than the beloved 'Deus Ex: Human Revolution,' which will be translated to the big screen with the help of the man who helmed 'Sinister,' Scott Derrickson.
Hot on the heels of the David Fincher-produced trailer for the new 'Halo' game, Guy Ritchie has stepped into the video game arena with the debut of his commercial for 'Call of Duty: Black Ops II,' featuring an all-too-brief cameo from Robert Downey Jr.
'Mass Effect 3,' the immensely popular third installment of the video game series, sold about 1.3 million copies across all gaming platforms within its first month and quickly became the year's bestselling video game. So it only makes sense that Legendary Entertainment would want to adapt this hit video game for the big screen. The studio first picked up the rights to the project back in 2008, but now they're finally moving forward with it, having picked up a new writer to pen the script.
Forget all that meth from 'Breaking Bad' -- speed is where it's at these days. Aaron Paul has joined the adaptation of the hit video game franchise 'Need for Speed' as one of the film's two leads.
While we anxiously await David Fincher's follow-up to 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,' the director is re-teaming with that film's visual effects lead to produce the trailer for the long-awaited 'Halo 4' from Microsoft.
'God of War,' Sony's Greek epic game for the Playstation, is one of the more ambitious video games attempting to transition from the console to the big screen. Aiding that transition will be screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who have toiled away in the horror genre for many years in the service of films like 'Saw' (they penned parts IV through VII) and 'Piranha' (they gifted us with 'Piranha 3DD'). Naturally, they won't be taking their duties with 'God of War' lightly, and the duo recently gave IGN a few morsels of information regarding their work on the project.
'God of War' is one of the most popular franchises on the Playstation gaming system. The story of Kratos and his long standing battle against the gods of Olympus is awesome and a lot of fun to play. And now it looks as if the big screen adaptation that has been talked about for years is finally going to happen.
