Activision Blizzard Studios Is Creating a "Call of Duty" Cinematic Universe

The Call of Duty franchise is getting the Marvel treatment with a slew of interconnected movies on the drawing board. I have no idea who asked for this, but if they manage to court Michael Bay and Hans Zimmer (who already composed for Modern Warfare 2) for a Call of Duty: Zombies film, I will be there.

According to [Stacey Sher and Nick van Dyk, the co-presidents of Activision Blizzard Studios], work on the Call of Duty films has already generated multiple scripts, and involved extensive research with military experts and retired soldiers. They are mapping out a Call of Duty universe which will draw on the feel of the different incarnations of the game rather than transposing existing plots. A first instalment could and within a couple of years after starting shooting as early as 2018 and, if all goes to plan, there will be more to follow.
