Popular video games see to be the answer to hopeful box office gold and now Hollywood next movie is ‘Call of Duty.’
Activision Blizzard already has a director in site, Stefano Sollima, but when if he decides to do ‘Call of Duty’ he already has two lead actors in mind. Read on to see who Sollima wants as his lead actors…
CelebNMovies247.com has the latest from director Stefano Sollima who isn’t afraid to aim high when it comes to casting the potential ‘Call of Duty’ movie.
According to sources Stefano Sollima wants Tom Hardy and Chris Pine. This will be the second-time fans of both stars will see them interact again onscreen since This Means War. The two men have great onscreen chemistry, so if the movie is well written and Tom Hardy and Chris Pine sign on, it might be a hit.
Tom Hardy and Chris Pine have played roles as soldiers or captains in the past, with ‘Band of Brothers’ and ‘Wonder Woman’, so this is a good look for the movie.
Filmmaker Stefano Sollima told metro.co.uk that he loved Hardy’s work:
“I mean, I like almost everything [he’s been in]. I’m waiting for his ‘Venom’. Even in ‘Mad Max’, he was great.”
As for Pine, he had nothing but positive words, saying:
“He’s tough, but he’s smart and he can have a sense of humor, but he can [also] be in such a dramatic role. I like when you feel that an actor can play with different nuances and tone because this means they’re a good actor.”
The ‘Call of Duty’ movie would have to be something very special since war movies are a dime a dozen. Not to mention the fact, it’s a movie based on a video game, which can go either way. This year, the new ‘Tomb Raider’ movie hits theaters and Dwayne Johnson will star in ‘Rampage’ so we will see how they do before the studio says yay or nay.
