Tom Clancy’s The Division has had tremendous success, as it has been one of the most sold video games this year. Being set in a near dystopian future, the player is part of the Strategic Homeland Division, trying to rebuild New York City after it went down in chaos after a massive smallpox epidemic.
Actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Nightcrawler, Southpaw, Everest) has now signed to both play the lead role in and produce a movie adaptation of this video game hit; a trend that seems to be picking up.
Gyllenhaal has previously starred in the adaptation of Prince Of Persia, and now joins Michael Fassbender, who will portray a never before seen assassin in this year’s Assassin’s Creed, and Tom Hardy, who is attached to Splinter Cell.
