Academy Award winner, Stephen Gaghan, will write and direct the upcoming movie adaption of Tom Clancy's The Division. Gaghan both directed and wrote Traffic (2000) and Syriana (2005); two exceptional films.

“I’m excited to work with Ubisoft Motion Pictures and collaborate with their team at Massive Entertainment to bring The Division to the big screen, they’re great guys, exceptionally creative, and willing to take risks,” shared writer and director, Stephen Gaghan. “The game has been an enormous success, in large part due to the visual landscape they created, their vision of a mid-apocalyptic Manhattan. It’s immersive, wonderfully strange, and yet familiar, filled with possibilities. It’s also remarkable to be able to collaborate with Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal early in the process. We all feel the story Ubisoft created is more relevant than ever.”

“We are really excited to bring Stephen’s unique vision of the game to film audiences around the globe,” said Gerard Guillemot, Chief Executive Officer, Ubisoft Motion Pictures.  “We can’t wait for Stephen’s remarkable passion and talent to bring the astonishing world of The Division to life,” added Matt Phelps, Vice President and Head of Development, Ubisoft Motion Pictures.

Ubisoft's previous movie, Assassin's Creed, collected $188.3 million in worldwide ticket sales against a production budget of $125 million. I quite enjoyed the movie and it was everything it should be. Ubisoft Motion Pictures might be the first studio to produce quality game to movie adaptations.
