Ubisoft Motion Pictures has announced its new project will be an adaptation of the critically acclaimed and best-selling video game.
Ubisoft continue to lead the charge in star-powered video game adaptations, with the Assassin’s Creed movie (starring Michael Fassbender) due in cinemas next January, and now the news that Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain will be involved with a big screen version of Tom Clancy’s The Division.
“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,” said Gerard Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer, Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
“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,” added Matt Phelps, Vice President, Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
Ubisoft Motion Pictures was established in 2011 to expand Ubisoft’s video game brands into film, TV and other entertainment platforms, and so far appear to be doing a sterling job in attracting A-list talent and filmmakers to its projects.
