'Sicario 2' Director Stefano Sollima Set To Helm 'Call Of Duty' Movie

Video game publisher Activision Blizzard is taking steps to get a "Call of Duty" adaptation underway, with "Sicario 2" director Stefano Sollima said to be in talks over the project.

Although plot details are unknown at present, previous word suggested that the movie will draw on different incarnations of the games.

Ever since the launch of the Call of Duty franchise back in 2003, fans and community members have questioned the possibility of a feature film being created to depict the series on the silver screen, with numerous rumors floating around over the years. It shouldn't come as a surprise that there's a Call of Duty movie in the works, something that will be limited to 24FPS.

One of the most interesting pieces of information in the Variety article is the revelation that Sher, a veteran producer with credits that include The Hateful Eight and Django Unchained (as well as Skylanders: Academy), wants to turn the Call of Duty film franchise into an extended universe that rivals the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plenty of great war dramas have a fantastic cast to pull you in to the sheer agony of being on the frontlines of war, so if Call of Duty can pull that off, maybe there's hope for something special.

"We have plotted out many years..."

That Call of Duty movie is moving closer to actually happening, despite the fact that Hollywood has still yet to churn out a genuinely good video game adaptation.

She added: 'The Modern Warfare series looks at what it's like to fight a war with the eyes of the world on you. It's a much more broad and inclusive, global in scope ... a big, tentpole Marvel-esque movie'.

However, after Activision Blizzard Studios was established in 2015 in order to be at the helm of creation for television shows, film, and other forms of media, the possibility of a CoD movie was teased by the developer.

I don't know what to think about this, but I can't see a traditional movie franchise and cinematic universe in Call of Duty.
