Sony Pictures Bringing Ubisoft's 'Raving Rabbids' Game to Theaters

February 11, 2014

Raving Rabbids

Ever since launching their own film division in 2011, Ubisoft has been lining up plenty of big screen adaptations of their video games including the forthcoming Watch Dogs, Michael Bay's Ghost Recon, Assassin's Creed with Michael Fassbender and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell with Tom Hardy. Now they've added another video game adaptation to the pile as Ubisoft and Sony Pictures have announced a feature film take on Raving Rabbids, the video game characters who originated as villains in Ubisoft's Rayman, but have since gotten their own games, comics and TV series, not unlike the Minions crew from Despicable Me.

Hannah Minghella, president of Production for Columbia Pictures says, "There is an infectious quality to the Rabbids. Their simple joy and absurd, anarchic behavior inadvertently causes you to look at the world afresh. There’s no end to the comedy and chaos they will cause when they invade our theaters.” For those who don't know, the Rabbids are big, crazy rabbits who cause mischief and chaos. The TV series has proven to be popular with the young audiences, so the film shouldn't have a problem finding an audience, but we hope the story will have some quality writing. Thoughts?
