MOVIE NEWS – Activision Blizzard won’t be satisfied with just one or two movies!
Stacey Sher and Nick Van Dyk talked to The Guardian. Who are they? Well, they are the co-presidents of Activision Blizzard Studios. Van Dyk previously has played a pivotal position of acquiring the Marvel and Star Wars licenses for Disney, while Sher has been a producer of many series and films, and she has worked with people like Quentin Tarantino as well.
„There’ll be a film that feels more like Black Ops, the story behind the story. The Modern Warfare series looks at what it’s like to fight a war with the eyes of the world on you. And then maybe something that is more of a hybrid, where you are looking at private, covert operations, while a public operation is going on,” they say. The cross-over looks something like The Avengers, to be fair. Van Dyk says that each movie will be like a „big, tentpole Marvel-esque” one, hoping that their „individual universes that interconnect and a timeline that makes sense with consistent themes and Easter eggs.”
They are considering a TV series for historical events, which means that the first Call of Duty games can end up on our screens. They are also thinking about doing something with Overwatch as well…
