In early June last year, it became known that one of the fastest growing game franchises, Tom Clancy's The Division , will receive a full-length film adaptation. The cast of the project already includes Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain, and now the film has a director.|
According to the site Variety , the project will be run by Stephen Geigan , whose latest work, the drama "Gold", is now preparing to conquer American cinemas. So far, the film starring Matthew McConaughey has received mixed reviews from critics, but do not forget that Geygan has a Oscar for the text for "Traffic" and a nomination from film academics for "Siriana". Curiously, the filmmaker also has experience in the video game industry - Stephen was one of the writers for Call of Duty: Ghosts .
Now moviegoers are trying to move away from their frustration with Assassin's Creed. However, the hope remains that the creators of the screen version of The Division will avoid the mistakes of their predecessors. Fortunately, it will be easier to adapt the game than the same Assassin's Creed , and post-apocalypticism is in trend today.
The original is set in New York after a smallpox epidemic spreads. The central character is in the so-called "Unit" , trying to take control of Manhattan, which is flooded with criminals, and in parallel to find out the causes of the outbreak.
Given the previous experience of Geygan and his love of video games, it can be assumed that Stephen is able to make The Division into a movie that can become a breakthrough in its genre ...
