Tomb Raider and Rampage aren’t even out yet, but Hollywood is pursuing another potentially cursed video game franchise movie. Or… “Universe,” rather…
Variety reports that Sicario 2: Soldado director Stefano Sollima is in negotiations to direct a film adaption of Call of Duty for Activision Blizzard.
Very little is known about the project at this time. Activision Blizzard Studios’ Presidents Stacy Sher and Nick van Dyk are producing the film along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. There is no start date or distributor, though the studio is now seeking a writer.
Last April, Sher and van Dyk both discussed that they were putting together a universe (oh… geez…) that will draw on the feel of different incarnations of the game rather than focusing on existing plots. At this point though, we don’t even know what era the film will focus on.
I guess it is safe to assume Kevin Spacey will not be in this film then, as he was in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. For the reason of not repeating stories… and something else… something more sinister.
Meanwhile, Sollima’s Sicario 2: Solado hits theaters on June 29, 2018, starring Benecio del Toro and Josh Brolin.
