Despite poor game sales.

Avatar Films has teamed up with Sekretagent Productions to secure the movie rights to Cold Fear, Ubisoft's survival horror adventure for PC, PS2 and Xbox, according to

Cold Fear was published last year and didn't sell too well, perhaps understandably. Like the game, the movie will follow the adventures of coast guard Tom Hansen, who finds himself set adrift on a whaling ship infested by aliens.

Sekretagent Productions has previously written storylines for other Ubisoft games, which apparently helped them to secure the license. The producers are seeking potential directors for the film before pitching it to the studios.
