Ubisoft is paying Oscar-winning directors Francois Alaux and Herve de Crecy $10m to make a live action film based on new game Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.

The 'short' will be 20 minutes long and serve as a prequel, setting up the story for the US special forces squad, the Hollywood Reporter reported. Children of Men writer Tim Sexton is also on board.

Francois Alaux and Herve de Crecy won Best Animated Short Film on Sunday night for their creation Logorama.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier will be released this autumn on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. The live action film has no date.
