Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima signs up to direct Call Of Duty movie
Stefano Sollima has signed up to direct the Call Of Duty movie.
Sollima, who is currently putting the final touches to Sicario sequel Soldado, has signed up to take charge of a big-budget movie based on the hugely successful computer game series.
According to Variety, the movie won't take direct inspiration from the big selling shoot-em-ups, instead taking the feel of the different incarnations of the game rather than bringing over existing plots.
Soldado will be released this summer. Set a few years after Sicario, in this movie we find Josh Brolin's Matt and Benicio Del Toro's Alejandro still engulfed in the border war, facing cartels that are more powerful than ever.
The pair return to the US-Mexico border to hunt down Carlos Reyes, a cartel king now trafficking terrorists. What initially feels like a hit job quickly reveals itself as an elaborate CIA shadow war.
Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Isabela Moner, Catherine Keener and Matthew Modine co-star, with Stefano Sollima, director of Suburra, in charge of this one. Taylor Sheridan provides the script once again.
The movie will be released into cinemas on June 29th in the summer.
