According to Variety, Sicario 2: Soldado helmer Stefano Sollima is in negotiations to direct a movie adaptation of the best selling Activision's video-game series. The publisher has refused to comment.
Activision Blizzard Studios’ presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk are set to produce the movie along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. Kieran Fitzgerald (The Homesman, Snowden) penned the script and will develop with Sollima. The film currently doesn't have a distributor.
Sollima's work on the popular Sky Atlantic crime series Gomorra caught the eyes of Sicario 2: Soldado producers, who tapped him to take over the series after director Denis Villeneuve's decision to helm Blade Runner: 2049 and the Dune remake. Call of Duty doesn't have a release date yet.
Stefano Sollima's Sicario 2: Soldado is set to open on June 29, 2018.
