Tom Clancy's THE DIVISION Sets David Leitch To Helm The Live-Action Game Adaptation

David Leitch appears to be on some good juju these days. Next month's Deadpool 2 release now has a final trailer and in its wake as of Thursday, now reveals he'll be directing actor Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain in Tom Clancy's The Division, the hit game from Ubisoft.

Gyllenhaal and Chastain were both added to the project which they are also producing through their own banners next to that of Leitch, and auspices at Ubisoft Motion Pictures. According to Justin Kroll's exclusive at Variety, the plan is to start development this year following the Atomic Blonde helmer's completion on the Fast saga spin-off with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham.
Based on the best-selling video game, the story is set in a near future where a pandemic virus is spread via paper money on Black Friday, decimating New York City and killing millions. By Christmas, what’s left of society has descended into chaos. A group of civilians, trained to operate in catastrophic times, is activated in an attempt to save who and what remains.
The John Wick co-helmer and franchise producer is producing with Kelly McCormack at 8711. Gyllenhaal will also produce with Riva Marker of Nine Stories and with Chastain and Kelly Carmichael of Freckle Films also producing.
