Activision Blizzard Studios has hired ‘Black Panther’ writer to write Call of Duty movie sequel
Variety has reported that Activision Blizzard Studios has hired former ‘Black Panther’ writer, Joe Robert Cole, to write the sequel to the first Call of Duty movie, which has yet to be released.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Sicario 2 director Stefano Sollima was hired to direct the first Call of Duty movie.
Activision Blizzard Studio has not yet announced the cast or details on the first Call of Duty movie, but Variety reports that the studio wants the second movie’s script to be ready to go as soon as the first movie goes into production next year.
Activision Blizzard Studios is already getting the gears turning on a sequel to “Call of Duty,” tapping “Black Panther” scribe Joe Robert Cole to pen the upcoming second installment.
The studio hired “Sicario 2” director Stefano Sollima earlier this year to helm the first film, which is an adaptation of the popular video game, and even though a cast hasn’t been assembled, the studio wants a sequel script ready to go as soon as the first pic goes into production next year.
Activision Blizzard Studios presidents Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk are producing, along with Activision Blizzard chief executive Bobby Kotick. Coco Francini is also producing.
Activision Blizzard Studios officially became an operating division of Activision Blizzard back in 2015, when the company announced the division would release Call of Duty films and possibly TV adaptations overtime. The studio thus far has only released a Skylanders TV show on Netflix, which has been popular thus far. There’s no indication yet on when the first Call of Duty movie could release.
Variety states Activision Blizzard Studios did not respond for a request for a comment.
