“Sicario 2” Director Joins “Call of Duty” Film

Filmmaker Stefano Sollima (Sky Atlantic’s “Gomorrah”), who is helming the upcoming “Sicario” sequel, is reportedly in negotiations to direct a film adaptation of Activision Blizzard Studios’ popular video game series “Call of Duty”.

The plan is to create an original story that will draw on the feel of the different incarnations of the game, as opposed to a direct adaptation of a specific entry. The hope is to launch a potential cinematic universe that could rival Marvel or DC.

Kieran Fitzgerald (“Snowden,” “Wormwood”) is penning the script and will develop with Sollima while Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk are producing.
