Sicario was one of my favourite films of 2015. It was the film which introduced me to the brilliance of Denis Villeneuve as a director, it had an incredible story with depth and performances which were awesome, especially from Benecio del Toro. As you can imagine, I was ecstatic that a sequel to Sicario was going to happen and we are only months away from its release. Sadly, Denis Villeneuve did not return to direct Sicario 2: Soldado but I am curious to see what Stefano Sollima will do in the director’s chair. We now know more about what his next project could be.

Call of Duty

An exclusive report by Variety states that Activision Blizzard Studios, a film division of Activision, is accelerating development of a film adaptation of Call of Duty. Stefano Sollima is in negotiations to direct the film that would launch a franchise/cinematic universe of Call of Duty films.

Stefano Sollima

A cinematic universe of Call of Duty films has been a wish of Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk, presidents of Activision Blizzard Studios, for some time. Indeed, in an interview with The Guardian back in April 2017, both Sher and van Dyk spoke about the wish to create a franchise that would rival the behemoth that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
