‘Sicario 2’ Director Tapped to Helm ‘Call of Duty’ Film for Activision Studios (Exclusive)

Activision Studios, a film division of the popular gaming company Activision Blizzard Studios, is ramping up developing on its adaptation of its video game “Call of Duty” and looks to have a director in its sights.

Sources tell Variety that “Sicario 2: Soldado” helmer Stefano Sollima is in negotiations to direct an adaptation of the popular video game.

A rep for Activision Blizzard declined to comment.

Activision Blizzard Studios’s Presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk are producing along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. No start date has been set as the studio will now look to attach a writer. The film is currently without a distributor.

Plot details are under wraps, but when Sher traded in her veteran producing job for the new gig, she and van Dyk talked about the idea of turning this mega gaming franchise into a cinematic universe that could rival Marvel or DC.
