According to one of the writers, Activision is currently holding the Call of Duty script. Call of Duty is one of the most popular franchises for video games. The first person shooter franchise, first published by Activision in 2003, has since released a total of 16 titles. Call of Duty games has, also, taking seven of the top ten best-selling games of the last decade.
Activision Blizzard Studios
In November 2015, Activision Blizzard Studios first announced that they would create a film universe based on the Call of Duty game franchise. The movie was scheduled for release in 2019. In 2018, Stefano Sollima, Sicario: Soldado Day producer, was confirmed to direct the film. Sollima said it would be a’ real film’ during an interview with Screen Rant. In 2018, Black Panther writer Joe Robert Cole was hired to make the sequence by Activision. Since then, however, there has been a shortage of substantial movie releases that skipped the 2019 release window.
During a recent interview with the Italian film website, director and writer Stefano Sollima said the search for work is ongoing. Although Sollima wrote a script with Scott Silver, Activision no longer takes the call of duty as a priority. Sollima also confirmed that the project is “in limbo.”
The film was first revealed by Activision Blizzard Studios about four years ago. Following several news updates, the project has been reversed, and several expected release dates have been missed. At one point, Stacey Sher, co-president of the studio, claimed that although the film draws on themes from different calls to service submissions, it would also separate itself from the games. At another point, Sollima was even involved in working on the project with Tom Hardy and Chris Pine.
Call Of Duty Movie
After all the delays and the obstacles, a Call of Duty movie is impossible shortly. Since the studio first revealed its desire to create a film world, many other studios have sought to do something similar, all with different success rates. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most popular (and successful), but others, such as Legendary’s MonsterVerse and Universal’s Dark Universe, were not as lucrative.
While some CoD fans may be angry, this may be a cover-up blessing. Apart from a limited number of properties (all of which can be counted), the vast majority of adaptations in video games were duds. Whereas the future of the Call of Duty film universe seems unlikely at this point, fans are still looking forward to several video game entries.
