Call of Duty Movie to Be Helmed By Sicario 2 Director Stefano Sollima: Report
Highlights
  • Stefano Sollima could be directing the Call of Duty movie
  • No plot details have been revealed as of now
  • Sollima wants Tom Hardy and Chris Pine in leading roles

The Call of Duty movie may already have a director attached to it. Activision Blizzard Studios is in negotiations with Sicario 2: Soldado director Stefano Sollima. Activision Blizzard Studios is the film division of gaming giant Activision Blizzard, known for franchises like Call of Duty and World of Warcraft.

According to a report from Variety, Kieran Fitzgerald, who penned 2016 biopic Snowden will write the script which will further be developed by Sollima. Activision Blizzard Studios’ presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick and Activision Blizzard Studios’ Coco Francini will be producing the film. No plot details or stars have been revealed, though Sollima is keen on Tom Hardy and Chris Pine for the lead roles.

“I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in]. I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great,” he said of Hardy in conversation with Metro.

“He’s tough, but he’s smart and he can have a sense of humour but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role,” said Sollima about Pine.

It will be interesting to see if Activision Blizzard Studios will end up releasing a Call of Duty movie on a yearly basis, just like the games. More so when you consider that the company is planning an interconnected series of Call of Duty films similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
