Ubisoft working on Child of Light television and Werewolves Within movie adaptations

New projects from Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

Child of Light

Ubisoft is working on scripts for a Child of Light live-action television show and Werewolves Within movie, the company told Variety. Both adaptations are products of the company’s inaugural Women’s Film and Television Fellowship.

The Women’s Film and Television Fellowship launched last summer to “illuminate female voices within the entertainment industry.” Mishna Wolff and Tasha Huo were the first two applicants accepted to the program and were given access to Ubisoft’s library of properties for potential TV and film developments. For the following six months, they worked together with Ubisoft television development director Danielle Kreinik and film development director Margaret Boykin. After the program wrapped up, both pitched their script ideas to Ubisoft Motion Pictures and were given deals.

Now, Huo is writing the pilot for the television adaptation of Child of Light, while Wolff is scripting the film adaptation of Werewolves Within. According to Huo, the television adaptation of Child of Light will capture the same feel of a “playable fairy-tale with a strong female heroine” that the game captured. And according to Wolff, the movie adaptation of Werewolves Within will be a live-action horror comedy set in a small town where its residents play judge, jury, and executioner.

Further details about the television show and movie were not announced.
