You may have forgotten that a The Division movie has been in the works since last year. That is understandable: Time passes, trash day requires effort, and people didn’t shut up about Rogue One in your Twitter feed during the month of December. But we can assure you that the film is a real thing, it is still happening, and it has secured its director.
Stephen Gaghan has been tapped to direct the movie adaptation of the online game. Gaghan is a writer who has has several movie screenplays under his belt, including Syriana and Traffic. He also penned the script for Call of Duty: Ghosts.
Gaghan is excited about the source material for the film: “The game has been an enormous success, in large part due to the visual landscape they created, their vision of a mid-apocalyptic Manhattan. It’s immersive, wonderfully strange, and yet familiar, filled with possibilities.”
