Call of Duty is already one of the biggest gaming franchises out there, but Activision Blizzard is not enough, and wants the famous shooter series to dominate theaters as well.|
In 2015, a special division, Activision Blizzard Studios , was created to work on film and television projects. And even after the situation has become a pattern when the film adaptations of video games do not find proper support from the audience, Activision Blizzard does not intend to abandon plans to adapt Call of Duty . Moreover, now the bosses of the company want to create a whole universe in the image and likeness of the "Avengers".
Producers Stacy Sher and Nick van Dyck , who lead Activision Blizzard Studios , are responsible for this ambitious task. Cher has a number of Quentin Tarantino films (Pulp Fiction, Django Unchained), and Van Dyck previously worked for Disney and actively participated in the acquisition of House of Mice Lucasfilm and Marvel .
“We have a plan for many years ahead,, Stacy Sher admitted in an interview with The Guardian . -We put together a writing team to determine which direction to go next. There will be a movie reminiscent of Black Ops , a story within a story. Modern Warfare is more about what it means to fight in a war when the whole world is watching you. ”.
"The films will preserve the aesthetics of the game, but at the same time they will not be an exact copy of the original, but something more global like a blockbuster from Marvel ",- added van Dyck b>.
But Activision Blizzard will not stop there either - the company plans to supplement the universe with a series that will tell either about World War II or the Vietnam War. However, the most important thing is that, according to Cher , films and TV shows will focus on the heroes, and if everything goes according to plan, then the audience will be able to appreciate the tremendous work of the team next year.
