Ubisoft’s The Division is headed for the big screen after massive sales of the online game. Playing the lead character will be none other than Jake Gyllenhaal who’s last foray in video games movies didn’t go so well. Although, I did enjoy Prince of Persia.
The story from the game is as follows: “A devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City, and one by one, basic services fail. In only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, a classified unit of self-supported tactical agents, is activated. Leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, The Division agents are trained to operate independently of command, as all else fails. Fighting to prevent the fall of society, the agents will find themselves caught up in an epic conspiracy, forced to combat not only the effects of a manmade virus, but also the rising threat of those behind it. When everything collapses, your mission begins.”
Gyllenhaal will also serve as producer. No writer or director is currently attached.
