Ubisoft’s The Division is coming to the big screen, and today, Ubisoft Motion Pictures confirmed Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain will star in the upcoming film.
In addition to their starring roles, both Gyllenhaal and Chastain will take part in the development process of The Division’s upcoming film through their production companies, Nine Stories and Freckle Films, respectively.
While this information may not seem new to fans of The Division considering we knew Gyllenhaal would star and produce the film, adding another well-respected star into the mix is never a bad thing.
This wouldn’t be the first time Gyllenhaal worked with Ubisoft on a project as he starred in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time back in 2010. After six years, it’s good to see Gyllenhaal working on another Ubisoft project, and judging by its fan base, it may be Ubisoft’s biggest film yet.
