“Border Killer 2” director Stefano Sollima has been in action for 2018, but we haven’t heard of it for a long time. According tomedia reports, the “Call of Duty” film has been passively regarded by the official indefinite shelving.
Director Sollima shared some details on an Italian website podcast. According to Sollima, Scott Silver, the screenwriter of last year’s film The Joker, wrote the screenplay for the Call of Duty film. But Activision’s plan to expand Call of Duty from game to movie has been terminated and is no longer an internal priority. So the film itself is in limbo.
Sollima says such suspensions are common in the U.S. film industry, and his work on the Call of Duty film project remains uncertain.
Details of the plot of the Call of Duty adaptation have never been made public, but it has been reported that Activision has insisted on not adapting the existing story. Director Sollima has also said his plan is to “betray the architecture of video games” to make a great film. In a 2018 interview with Slash Film, Sollima mentioned that he wanted to tell “the story of a soldier” but not from traditional war movies.
