'Tom Clancy's The Division' reportedly being turned into a movie, starring Jake Gyllenhaal

Tom Clancy's The Division went on sale in March, and after selling more copies than any other game in Ubisoft's history in its first 24 hours, the company said it had also smashed a global record, enjoying "the biggest first week ever for a new game franchise", racking up an estimated $330 million of sales in just five days.

It seems Ubisoft is keen to capitalize on the huge popularity of the game, as Variety reports that it will soon be turned into a blockbuster movie.

Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko, Brokeback Mountain, Jarhead) has reportedly signed up to star in the movie adaptation of Tom Clancy's The Division; he's also said to be lined up as a producer, but it's believed that a writer has not yet been chosen for the project.

Ubisoft is no stranger to big-budget films based on its gaming properties. The game developer is already working with Fox and New Regency on its upcoming Assassin's Creed movie, and with Paramount on another project based on the popular Splinter Cell gaming series, starring Tom Hardy.
