The Division To Get A Movie
Over the last couple of decades there has been an overlap of games and movies, or even TV series for that matter. Big production houses including Marvel and DC comics have been trying to develop good quality games, based on their movies.
Ubisoft has been a part of this spill-over as well. After the Assassin Creed’s movie, they are now planning a movie on the Division.
Ubisoft’s CEO has, Yves Guillemot, has been optimistic about the movie so far. However, he does not want fans to get their hopes up high. After Assassin Creed’s run, he’s more conservative with his words.
Very nervously he stated “This movie is well on the way,” and later reiterated, “well on the way in its first phases.”
Ubisoft might not re-establish ties with Fox Studios for the movie. However, both Ubisoft and the Division are big names thereby many big studios should be interested in making the movie. More so, as Ubisoft would be looking to develop more movies in the future. The tie up would be profitable for any studio.
Progressively, decisions for the development of the movie are being made. This includes Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain to act as the lead roles in the movie. They have also locked down Stephen Gaghan for writing and directing the movie.
Starting from Assasin’s Creed, Ubisoft will be developing a number of movies based on their video games. There have been no more announcements with respect to the dates or titles of the other games.
