For the second episode of Best Girl Grip goes to TIFF, I’m joined by Margaret Boykin, Director of Film Development at Ubisoft where she is focused on adapting their catalogue of games for film, with titles in their library including Ghost Recon and Just Dance.

Fun fact Jake Gyllenhaal has been lured back into the world of video game adaptation with Ubisoft’s production of The Division, also starring Jessica Chastain which has been picked up by Netlflix.

Margaret and I talk about the path she took to arrive at development, her role in setting up the Ubisoft Women’s Fellowship and what it means to both spot and nurture emerging talent.
