Ubisoft’s The Division movie has secured David Leitch as its Director, a stuntman-turned-director responsible for Deadpool 2 and John Wick. He joins Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain, who have both been with the movie from the beginning, and takes over from Stephen Gaghan, more famous for geopolitical themes.
David Leitch is also on board to direct the Fast and Furious spinoff that stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham, so it’s safe to say he’s got a pretty solid background in action movies. It is said that this movie will be shot first before Leitch moves on to prepare The Division at some point in 2019, with his producing partner, Kelly McCormick set to produce alongside Leitch under their 8711 banner.
The Division has had a rocky existence though has made vast improvements since its launch and has not only managed to reach 20 million players but is also getting a sequel, which we should hopefully hear more from at E3 in June. Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal and Chastain have remained persistent in ensuring that The Division movie stays true to the tone of the video game it bases itself on. Overall, it’s certainly a big enough franchise with a fascinating setting that could make for a fantastic movie.
We shall most definitely be keeping an eye on The Division movie. We’ve always had a soft spot for the game and its setting, despite the tumultuous launch, and the crew behind it thus far are incredibly promising. However, this won’t be Ubisoft Motion Pictures’ first rodeo and we shall most definitely be playing the “wait and see” game.
