MOVIE NEWS – Call of Duty is getting a cinematic adaptation (it took the franchise several years to get here, didn’t it?), and there are already rumors about its cast.
Variety reports that the first Call of Duty movie is going to be directed by Stefano Sollima, the director of Sicario 2. Of course, nor Activision, neither Sollima commented, but Metro contacted the Italian director, who revealed two more names!
Sollima would like to see Tom Hardy and Chris Pine in the main roles. Regarding Hardy, Sollima said the following: „I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in]. I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great.” His quote about Pine follows: „He’s tough, but he’s smart, and he can have a sense of humor, but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role.”
The publisher giant founded Activision Blizzard Studios, their TV/movie production company, in 2015, so we can safely say that it was about time!
