Ubisoft – Following the launch and second-season renewal of “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” Ubisoft Film & Television is already at work on a new original project, this time looking at the world of esports through the eyes of senior citizens. Inspired by a Wall Street Journal article, the untitled film centers on an esports team made up entirely of senior citizens, who learn to triumph in a world dominated by younger competitors.
Written and directed by the creative team of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein (“I Feel Pretty,” “He’s Just Not That Into You,” “Never Been Kissed”), the untitled film is being produced by Jason Altman and Margaret Boykin for Ubisoft Film & Television. Alongside “Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet,” the film joins a growing slate of original Ubisoft Film & Television properties set in the world of videogames, including an upcoming, untitled rom-com written by Ubisoft Women’s Film & Television Fellowship participant Heather Quinn
I can already see the whole movie in my head. Two parents are watching TV, they hear their kid screaming at a computer screen upstairs. Completely interrupting Dancing With The Stars. The parents walk upstairs to tell said kid, to shut the fuck up, and pause the game. The kid then says, “I can’t pause the game, it’s multiplayer. You wouldn’t understand.”
A little more banter and then enters the first of 5000 “ok boomer’s”.
The kid wakes up the next morning, and goes downstairs to get breakfast and a coffee in the house he doesn’t pay rent in. Real ungrateful prick. He sees his parents playing video games on PC’s that magically showed up over night. They tell the kid that they just want to understand, so they decided to play for themselves. And go figure, they’re somehow SICK at the game.
The parents of everyone in the squad get a PC. They know how a geezer team. And they are training to play against the kids in the climax of the movie. The kids win, and now the parents understand how video games have changed. The kids team starts competing in major tournaments, and the parents go and watch and are very supportive.
