Matthew Federman and Stephen Scaia, the duo who adapted the graphic novel Y: The Last Man for New Line, have been hired to write the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon screenplay for Warner Bros., according to Variety. The movie is based on Ubisoft's video game series of the same name.

The games center on a group of special operatives who uses the latest weapons and technologies to perform surgical strikes against threats around the world.

Michael Bay came onboard this summer to develop the movie into a potential franchise for the studio. If he likes the script, there's a possibility Bay may choose to direct the film since he has not decide on his next after Transformers: Age of Extinction. No doubt, this is the outcome WB and Ubisoft are wishing for.

Besides Ghost Recon, Ubisoft has two other game franchises being developed into movies over at Fox -- Assassin's Creed and Splinter Cell.

Assassin's Creed is further along in its development and is tentatively schedule for a June 19, 2015 release. Michael Fassbender is attached to produce and star.

Splinter Cell will star Tom Hardy, but as far as we know, there isn't a script for the movie yet.
