The ‘Call of Duty’ Sequel Film Already Has a Writer

Talk about optimism, wow- Activision Blizzard Studios has reportedly hired Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole to pen the screenplay for the Call of Duty live-action SEQUEL film.

Yes, a sequel film, for a film that hasn’t been made yet.

Stefano Sollima (Sicario 2 director) was hired earlier this year to direct the first Call of Duty film, but there has been no publicly released information about the project since then.

Stacey Sher, co-president of Activision Blizzard Studios, revealed some of the thoughts behind the upcoming planned Call of Duty shared universe:

“We have plotted out many years…We put together this group of writers to talk about where we were going. There’ll be a film that feels more like Black Ops, the story behind the story. The Modern Warfare series looks at what it’s like to fight a war with the eyes of the world on you. And then maybe something that is more of a hybrid, where you are looking at private, covert operations, while a public operation is going on.”

We’ll let you know when we hear anything else about either of the live-action films.
