Ubisoft has announced a live-action Ghost Recon Wildlands short film, War Within the Cartel.
The 30-minute short stars T.I. and will be executive produced by Star Trek and Amazing Spider-Man writer Roberto Orci. It will premiere on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel on February 16 and will then be available to watch on Amazon for free to Amazon Prime subscribers.
War Within the Cartel will focus on the Santa Blanca drug cartel as they seek to flush out a traitor within their ranks, with T.I. portraying a member of the cartel named Marcus. The short is directed by Avi Youbian, who previously directed The Walking Dead season five episode “Now.” Aside from Orci, War Within the Cartel is also produced by American Gods actor Orlando Jones, and LA-based studio Legion of Creatives.
According to Ubisoft, the end of the film will lead directly into the events at the beginning of Ghost Recon Wildlands.
