In addition to working on the film adaptations of its main franchises in the form of TV series and films, the Film & Television division of Ubisoft announced that he wanted to give more importance to the original scripts. In this regard, screenwriter Annabel Seymour recently signed a contract with Ubisoft for the screenplay of Replay (working title), a film about a video game review writer unlucky in love, who will have a chance to play his dating series just like he would in a video game.
Annabel Seymour took part in the Women's Film & Television Fellowship 2020 from Ubisoft and from there he had the chance to develop and improve his script. The film is still in the early stages of development and currently has only a working title, Replay, and it has not yet been announced which studio will be in charge of shedding light on its script. Here is a statement released by Seymour regarding Ubisoft's announcement:
Replay represents exactly what I set out to do within the company, which is to use the precious raw materials provided by Ubisoft to create an emotional and perfectly recognizable comedy, which can affect and reach both the players and the people who have less affinity with. that world. I felt incredibly supported by Ubisoft. Replay has been a real team effort and I can't wait to continue working with this amazing group of people as the script takes shape.
The first project released thanks to Ubisoft's Women's Film & Television Fellowship is Werewolves Within of the writer Mishna Wolff, a horror comedy starring Sam Richardson (Detroiters, Veep - Vice President) and Milana Vayntrub (Other Space, This is Us) which will debut next 25nd June in US cinemas and on streaming platforms.
Some of Ubisoft Film & Television's previously released work includes the Assassin's Creed with Michael Fassbender and the TV show Rabbids published on the streaming platform Netflix. The company also has agreements to make some film transpositions based on The Division, a live-action Assassin's Creed series and a Beyond Good & Evil, all coming to Netflix. We just have to wait for further information from Ubisoft on the Replay movie.
