Here's Who Might Direct The Call Of Duty Movie

'Sicario 2' Director Tapped to Helm 'Call of Duty' Film (EXCLUSIVE)

Sher's eye for identifying high-quality talent after years of working with A-list directors like Quentin Tarantino and Steven Soderbergh, was a big reason Activision wanted her in this role, and Sollima's hiring solidifies the direction the studio wants this particular video game adaptation to go. Meanwhile, the script has already been penned by Kieran Fitzgerald though details on the plot are not known at this point.

There are now 14 games in the Call of Duty franchise, all of which deal with different time periods and wars. Sollima first broke out helming the United Kingdom series Gomorra but most recently helmed the upcoming sequel Sicario 2: Soldado, which no doubt paved the way for his hiring here. But they have to begin with one movie first, and it appears they've finally found a director. It's also worth remembering that so many planned films based on video games amount to nothing (where's that Halo movie?), so don't hold your breath.

Activision Blizzard Studios' Presidents Stacy Sher and Nick van Dyk are producing the film along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick.

Raiders won't bring back Janikowski

Spurs stage stirring comeback to gain upper hand against Juve
Christian Eriksen scored with a free-kick but it wasn't a wonderful curling effort into the top corner, as you might expect. Spurs made the most of their let-off too by equalising 19 minutes from time when an Eriksen free kick squeezed past Buffon.

According to a new report from Variety earlier today, Stefano Sollima is highly interested in helming the project.

For now, Sollima is still in talks, so we'll let you know when they're signed on. The "Call of Duty" games started off in 2003 with a World War II focus but since then have roamed through the 21st century and into near and far future contexts, with the "Modern Warfare" sub-series set between 2011 and 2017, and last year's "Call of Duty: WWII" returning to 1944. The film division of Activision Blizzard Studios is in negotiations with Sollima to direct an adaptation of the game franchise, though Activision Blizzard has not yet commented on the news. It's a much more broad and inclusive, global in scope ... a big, tentpole Marvel-esque movie'. Does adding "Call of Duty" to the title make it more than just a war movie?
