For the Call of Duty to enter the cinematic universe with great success, a director was hired that specialises in modern warfare. The film inspired by the first-person shooter game that originally was available exclusively on Windows and due to popularity expanded to handhelds and consoles sold well over 250 million copies by 2016 sales topped above the $15 million mark.
Several games were released as part of the Call of Duty series starting with the first in 2003 after which more versions were released in 2005 through to and including 2018 so that fans could invest in the latest version titled Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
Call of Duty – Fans Need to Be Patient For A Little Longer
The Call of Duty movie has been coming for quite some time now, and fans have been keeping an eye on the release date ever since, finally with a director specialising in modern warfare the film release date is finally starting to move closer. Call of Duty is one of the biggest video games ever released, and when it finally launches as a movie there is no doubt that it would be massive!
When it comes to the number of players hooked on this first-person shooter game, figures released in 2007 indicated that 100 million people were actively playing and by 2014 it was believed that daily players were enough to fill no less than eighty of the world’s biggest sports stadiums.
The first person shooting game with lots of wall to wall action as well as the franchise is well suited for a movie, and already a list of top celebs is staring in the game launch videos. When the director was asked about the type of film set that would be used, there were still a whole lot of ideas on the table including a futuristic war-torn or modern WW2 environment.
Stefano Sollima Specialist in First-Person Explosive Shootouts as Director
Stefano Sollima will direct the Call of Duty film and is known for the brilliant directing he did with Sicario2: Soldado. Sollima specialises in first-person explosive shootouts, modern crime films, which makes him perfect for the Call of Duty film. Although not confirmed yet the potential release date for the film is 2020.
When it comes to actors and believe me everyone hopes to be a part of such a massive production, Sollima already has two candidates in mind, which includes Chris Pine and Tom Hardy. When asked if it would be a replica like so many other war films, the directors replied that he intends to make Call of Duty different, at the soul of the franchise, this popular game tells a story, that of a soldier and the real tale is entertaining in a fun-to-play way. With millions of fans waiting for the release of the Call of Duty film, it could prove to be the film of the century!
