Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal to Star in The Division Movie

Jack Gardner



In the wake of Duncan Jones' financially successful Warcraft film, Ubisoft's film division is set to go into overdrive. Their Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender releases on December 21, followed by their mysterious Splinter Cell project with Tom Hardy sometime in 2017. Now Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal are attached to a now confirmed project based on The Division, which launched earlier this year.


Many will remember Jake Gyllenhaal starred as Dastan in the Disney film based off of and titled Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, another Ubisoft property. That particular film didn't fare well critically and underperformed at the box office in 2010. This time around, things might be a bit different. Beginning with Assassin's Creed, Ubisoft will be the ones producing and distributing the film through Ubisoft Motion Pictures. This move will give them more creative control over the content and style of their films. Additionally, both Fassbender and Gyllenhaal will be producing as well as acting in their respective films. Ostensibly, this will give the actors some say in how they are portrayed and lead to greater collaboration on Ubisoft's films.


No word yet on a release date or window for The Division film.


Could more Ubisoft properties be on the way to the big screen? What would you like to see?
