Ubisoft is no stranger to bringing its franchises to other media. They used a lot of money bringing Prince of Persia to the big screen nine years ago, Assassin's Creed has gotten quite a few shorts and even a full feature through the years, a Splinter Cell movie has been lingering in the shadows for a while and Jake Gyllenhaal is set to work with Ubisoft yet again in the upcoming The Division movie. Now we know that there's another project coming, and that's even before the game it'll be based on has launched.
The Hollywood Reporter can reveal that Skull & Bones, Ubisoft's upcoming pirate-game, will become a TV show. The French publisher has partnered up with Atlas Entertainment to make this "female-driven drama set in the lawless frontier of the Indian Ocean at the end of the golden age of piracy in the 1700s". Amanda Segel (Person of Interest and The Mist) is set to write the pilot and be the executive producer, so it sounds like everything is off to a smooth start. They're not willing to share when they plan to air the show however, so let's just hope that it doesn't go the same way as the Splinter Cell movie seems to have done.
