Cranium and Bones resurfaces in announcement of a TV adaptation
We have heard subsequent to nothing about Cranium and Bones, Ubisoft’s naval-based pirate simulator, since final yr’s E3. The title was set to take the weather from Murderer’s Creed IV: Black Flag and develop it to take away all of the Murderer/Templar nonsense. It appeared like the proper factor for followers of pirates, however what has been occurring with the IP? Apparently, Ubisoft has excessive hopes for this sport because it has secretly been engaged on producing a TV sequence for it.
Working with manufacturing firm Atlas Leisure (identified for Soiled John and 12 Monkeys), Cranium and Bones is ready to debut as a TV sequence earlier than the sport even comes out. The sequence is alleged to be a female-driven drama set within the “lawless frontier of the Indian Ocean” in the course of the 1700s. Amanda Segal (government producer of The Mist) will write and produce the pilot episode with assist from Atlas’ Andy Horwitz, Richard Suckle and Robert Amidon.
Danielle Kreinik, Director of Developer for TV at Ubisoft, informed Hollywood Reporter, “Ubisoft is understood for creating progressive video video games that mix immense worlds with wealthy narratives.” Kreinik will act as an government producer alongside Jason Altman, head of Movie and Tv at Ubisoft.
I am unable to say this is not formidable, however I am questioning if Ubisoft is betting the farm on this enterprise. The 2016 Murderer’s Creed movie was a reasonable success solely due to its worldwide box-office take. Within the states, the movie was an enormous flop and that was with the sequence being widespread. Cranium and Bones is totally unknown and is digging up reminiscences of when SyFy tried the identical factor with Pink Faction.
Solely time will inform with this one.
