Ubisoft Releases Details About Ghost Recon Alpha, A Film Prequel To Ghost Recon Future Soldier

Ubisoft has released details and stills for Ghost Recon Alpha, the Ghost Recon Future Soldier prequel film, in addition to a trailer that shows how the film crosses over with the game.

The publisher has announced that Ghost Recon Alpha will air on video game network G4 on Thursday, May 3rd, at 6:30 PM. The film’s four main characters are the same as the ones in the game, the story is set right before a major event in the GRFS storyline (an attack against a European city), the game’s setting was turned into a map for the game’s adversarial multiplayer mode, and a secret code is hidden in the movie for an exclusive GRFS weapon that can be unlocked via the Ghost Recon Network. The trailer released today shows how the film crosses over with GRFS.

Ubisoft shared the following details about the movie and some of the talent who worked on it:

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Alpha boasts a line-up of top Hollywood talent.  The film was directed by Academy Award winners Hervé de Crécy and François Alaux, who won an Oscar in 2010 for Logorama, and produced by Rhea Scott for Little Minx, a Ridley Scott & Associates company. Tim Sexton, 2010 Academy Award nominee for Children of Men, and Gregory Pruss wrote the gripping script. The film was shot by District 9 cinematographer Trent Opaloch; edited by Pietro Scalia, two time Academy Award winner for Black Hawk Down and JFK; with sound effects and sound effects editing by Per Hallberg, two time Academy Award winner for The Bourne Ultimatum and Braveheart as well as Michael Mann’s Heat; production design by Jan Roelfs (Gattaca, Alexander; and costume design by Sammy Sheldon (V for Vendetta, Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class, Black Hawk Down).  Military Weapons Specialist Harry Humphries, consultant on such notable action films such as Transformers, Thor, Iron Man and Armageddon, ensured that the futuristic weaponry in the film was entirely realistic.
