Gaming juggernaut Ubisoft has been making the Hollywood rounds this year, setting up film deals for its most popular properties, Assasin's Creed and Splinter Cell. Now, they've added a third to that list: Ghost Recon. Who did they hand the reins to? Michael Bay, of course.

Variety reported today that Bay signed on to develop the game series into a potential film franchise with the intention of directing. Part of us is all, "Ah, jeeze...this guy did Pearl Harbor." But the other part of us is all, "Explosions! Blood!" Because in case you've forgotten, Mr. Bay has responded to any and all criticisms in the past with the teflon-coated, brass-ball response, 'I make movies for teenage boys. Oh, dear, what a crime.' Truth.

Since we're all teenage boys at heart, we kinda can't wait to see what Bay will do with Ghost Recon -- games that stoke our childhood fantasies of being in a fictional unit of the U.S. Special Forces that secretly destroys shit with top-secret weapons and then disappears. It doesn't get any more badass than that.
