Assassin's Creed Short - Maybe More

Ubisoft, the French developer of games like "Prince of Persia" and "Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell," is opening a digital cinema studio in Montreal, and its first production will be an eight-minute film based on the game >"Assassin's Creed," starring Altair.

"We may consider doing longer-form films or television sometime in the future," said Mary Beth Hensen, a spokeswoman for Ubisoft, which is based in Montreuil, a suburb of Paris. "We're basically putting to work the existing creativity of our game developers as well as adding a more traditional cinematic slant to our roster."

I know the whole Final Fantasy film fiasco put a sour not on blending game and movie studios - but considering the resources many developers have to produce cutscene material, it only makes sens to try more and more of this down the road.
