The Division movie gets its star and producer in Jake Gyllenhaal

As with many of Ubisoft's game properties, it appears that yet another is moving to the big screen. This time, it's The Division.

According to Variety, Jake Gyllenhaal has been cast to star in the latest Tom Clancy game adaptation, and he is listed as producer as well. The project is still looking for a writer to pen the screenplay.

This would not be Gyllenhaal's first foray into an Ubisoft film project. He starred in the Prince of Persia adaptation, The Sands of Time, in 2010, surrounded by other big names such as Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina and Jerry Bruckheimer.

No other details were available, and Ubisoft is staying mum on the subject.

Ubisoft most current movie project is Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender, and is scheduled for release on December 21.
