At the end of 2015, Activision Corporation opened its own film division to create films based on its famous video games. At the same time it became known that the first picture of the Activision Blizzard Studio division should be the adaptation of the Call of Duty shooter series. As Variety found out, the film based on one of the most popular game franchises of the 21st century is finally ready to go into production.|
In April last year, it became known that Activision expects to create a cinematic universe based on Call of Duty in the spirit of Marvel's "Avengers". This idea can only be realized if viewers like the first film of the new franchise. In this regard, the bosses of the American corporation decided to offer an experienced director who had already shot bright action games to start staging a picture.
Stefano Sollima entered negotiations with the leadership of Activision. The debut of the native of Rome in big cinema was the crime thriller “All the cops are bastards”, which brought him a nomination for the prestigious Italian film award “David di Donatello”. This summer Sollima will present his first English-language project - the sequel to the thriller "The Killer".
The first Call of Duty game went on sale in 2003. Since then, the franchise has received numerous sequels and spin-offs, which have sold a total circulation of 250 million copies. Over the past 15 years, gamers managed to visit the fields of the Second World War and the Vietnam War, as well as take part in the fight against terrorists.
Officials of Activision are in no hurry to disclose information about the time period in which the plot of the first film project based on Call of Duty will unfold.
