Activision Planning “Call Of Duty” Film Adaptation
The upcoming Warcraft movie, based on the video game franchise World of Warcraft, won't be the only title from Activision adapted for the big screen. A Call of Duty movie is also planned.
According to The Verge, Activision Blizzard has announced that it's launching its own film studio, with plans to produce a series of films based around the popular first-person shooter, Call of Duty.
"Activision Blizzard Studios has the unique advantage of starting with a library of world-class intellectual property that includes some of the largest franchises which have not yet been developed in film and television," Nick van Dyk, the co-president of the new studio, told The Verge. "Our library spans more than 30 years of global entertainment culture and, in the last 12 months alone, fans of Activision Blizzard properties have played and watched our games online for more than 13 billion hours."
Further details about the Call of Duty movie adaptation is currently known.
However, Activision is also planning a TV based around the game, Skylanders, featuring the voices of Justin Long, Ashley Tisdale, Jonathan Banks, and Norm Macdonald.
The Warcraft movie is due out June 10, 2016.
