Ghost Recon just eased a step closer to the big screen. The adaptation of the Ubisoft video game, based on concepts created by Tom Clancy, scored a producer and potential director in Michael Bay earlier this year, and now Variety reports the film also has a a pair of screenwriters.
Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, who are almost finished writing the Y: The Last Man adaptation, will tackle the story, which revolves around U.S. Army Special Forces operatives who utilize cutting-edge weaponry and technology in missions directly assigned by the President of the United States.
Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon debuted in 2001, and has been going strong with a series of expansions, sequels and even a Facebook game. The most recent installment, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier, came out in 2012. Bay is producing and helping to shepherd the project along, but it’s possible he will direct after he’s completed Transformers: Age of Extinction.
