It seems yet another Ubisoft title will be making its way to the big screen. Ubisoft has announced that The Division movie is currently in pre-production.
The Division movie is set to star Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal, although there hasn’t been much revealed about the movie’s storyline and if it will stay true to the game. According to Gerard Guillemot (CEO of Ubisoft Motion pictures) and Matt Phelps (VP at Ubisoft Motion Pictures), Ubisoft seems to be very excited to bring the world and story of The Division to the big screen.
“We are excited to collaborate with Jessica and Jake, two of Hollywood’s most talented actors and perfect creative collaborators to help bring Tom Clancy’s The Division to the big screen. “Attaching Jake and Jessica is part of our development philosophy of working closely with top talent from the earliest stages to collaborate on a high-quality film.”
The Divisions has a really interesting and well thought out backstory (although this didn’t always come through in the game), and we are quite curious to see how they will approach this in the movie.
