The Division film director David Leitch has revealed that the project is still at the script stage.
In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Leitch - whose previous work includes Atomic Blonde and Deadpool 2 - spoke about how the movie version of Ubisoft’s The Division is progressing.
Multiple people have input for the script, from actors to the creative team. Netflix's adaptation of Tom Clancy's The Division could be the next project for Leitch; however, with a large team behind the movie, there are many schedules to be considered upon completion of the script.
The movie adaptation of Ubisoft's title was formally announced at E3 this year, where it was confirmed Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain have the lead roles.
“I’m excited about the material, and it is potentially next for us. We are currently in the script phase. Then, it’s about getting everybody’s schedules to line up and making sure that we’re ready to go with a script we’re 100 per cent behind. That process is accelerating quickly,” said Leitch
“I love that material, and I love the potential of working with those two incredible actors [Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain]. The creative team on that is Kelly McCormick as producer, myself, Jake and Jessica. We have a really core team that cares about the material and is going to work hard to make it great.”
There is no release date for The Division at this time.
