SICARIO 2 Director to Helm CALL OF DUTY Movie

The highly successful first-person shooter video game franchise "Call of Duty" is finally getting a big screen adaptation, joining the ranks of so many other game-to-movie translations. There have been talks of a COD movie for a long time, but now it seems that Activision Blizzard Studios, the film division of the gaming company Activision Blizzard, is ready to move forward with the project.

It has been reported that "Sicario 2: Soldado" director Stefano Sollima is in talks to helm the adaptation. A script has already been written by Kieran Fitzgerald ("Snowden"). While the studio hasn't commented on the news, there have been some updates provided by producer Stacey Sher in an interview, which also hints at the possibility of a multi-installment "Call of Duty" cinematic universe:
"“We have plotted out many years…We put together this group of writers to talk about where we were going. There’ll be a film that feels more like Black Ops, the story behind the story. The Modern Warfare series looks at what it’s like to fight a war with the eyes of the world on you. And then maybe something that is more of a hybrid, where you are looking at private, covert operations, while a public operation is going on.”"
