Report: The Division Movie to Star Jake Gyllenhaal

According to a report from Variety, a movie based on The Division is in the works, with Jake Gyllenhaal (Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) set to star and produce.

Although Ubisoft didn’t comment on the report, Variety adds that they’re currently looking for a writer and they’ll likely add one more actor before taking The Division movie to studios.

Currently, Ubisoft has the Assassin’s Creed movie coming out this December, with a Splinter Cell movie starring Tom Hardy also in the works.

As for The Division game, its recent server maintenance was cut short due to an unsuccessful patch deployment:

Prior to deployment, it has been found that the patch was unsuccessful and has been delayed. As such, today’s maintenance will finish early (approximately 12pm CEST).

This also means that the deployment of the Clear Sky Challenge Mode has been delayed for the time being as well. We will share more info on when the patch will be deployed and what it contains as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience.

The Division has more than 9.5 million players and it grossed over $330 million in its first five days.
