One day, the quest for a decent narrative film adaptation of a popular video game might end. Today is not that day, however, and the mission continues. Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain is now in talks to join the planned adaptation of Tom Clancy’s The Division – one of Ubisoft’s bestselling titles – which is being packaged for sale by Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
The project has been on the radar for some months, with the involvement of Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal as star and producer already confirmed. The Division will also be co-produced by Ubisoft’s Gerard Guillemot, and Chastain would presumably come aboard as co-lead cast member. The story would be a great fit for the actress, too, who has built an impressive career combining heavy duty drama (Zero Dark Thirty, A Most Violent Year), with more action-based fare (The Huntsman: Winter’s War).

Lucis is a magical kingdom and home to the scared crystal, which the evil empire Niflheim is determined to steal. When the enemy is on the hunt for the prized possession, King Regis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kinsglaive to fight and protect it. But the enemy’s army is strong and to save his kingdom King Regis must decide if he is to accept an ultimatum: cede all lands outside the crown city, and see his son, Prince Noctis, wed to Lady Lunafreya, the former princess of Tenebrae now captive of Niflheim.
This is the third film in the “Final Fantasy” franchise. The first was 2001’s “Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within” and the second “ Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children” came out in 2005.
“Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy Xv” will be released in select theaters on August 19 and digitally worldwide before the video game launches on September 30.
