Last week, there were reports that claimed that Activision Blizzard Studios has approached Sicario 2: Soldado fame director, Stefano Sollima, to direct the film adaptation of the wildly popular video game, Call of Duty.

“I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in],” Sollima said about Tom Hardy. “I’m waiting for his Venom. Even in Mad Max, he was great.”
Talking about Chris Pine, the Sicario 2 director said, “He’s tough, but he’s smart and he can have a sense of humour but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role, I like when you feel that an actor can play with different nuances and tone because this means they’re a good actor.”
The Call of Duty film is being produced by Activision Blizzard Studios’ presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. Kieran Fitzgerald has reportedly penned the script for the film. Rumors are that Sher and van Dyk plan are planning to go for a Marvel-style Call of Duty movie universe.
