The stealth series has been coveted by a number of big industry players, including Universal, but it seems Sony is closest to signing up the historical blockbuster. Variety reports that both Ubisoft and Sony are in the final stages of negotiation regarding the property.

It looks like Sony's banking big on conversions of video game properties, with an Uncharted movie famously in the works too. And the platform holder's not stopping there, with reports claiming an inFamous movie is definitely on the cards in the near future as well.
