According to Variety, video game adaptation The Division is moving forward, with Syriana and Gold director Stephen Gaghan stepping up to both write and direct the film. The Division video game is about special operatives sent into a plague-ravaged Manhattan to try and restore order by using shooter skills and light-role-playing-game-style tactics to kill rioters, renegade soldiers, and other human players. Gaghan’s movie will probably follow a similar path, but with fewer human players and role-playing-game-style mechanics—though a scene where the hero has to compare the stat benefits between two different pairs of gloves would be pretty awesome.
As we’ve previously reported, The Division will star Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain, but it’s still unclear who they’ll be playing. The game is about making your own person and discovering new, battle-ready outfits for them to wear, so Gaghan will probably have to come up with »

Oscar-winning writer/director Stephen Gaghan is set to direct the cinematic adaptation of the dystopian video game “The Division,” Variety reports. The film will also star Jessica Chastain and Jake Gyllenhaal, who were previously attached.

“He was drinking a lot of, I think it was tea stuff, a lot of fake alcohol, so it was pretty good,” she tells People Now host Jeremy Parsons about McConaughey’s breath. “It was like some sort of good, healthy aesthetic substitute for alcohol.”
While “pretty good” isn’t bad, it’s hardly the ringing endorsement Howard gave her Jurassic World costar Chris Pratt, whose breath she said was “like Starburst.” She added, “He’s perfect in every way. »

Even filmmaker Stephen Gaghan will admit it’s been far too long since he’s had a movie in theaters with the Oscar-nominated political thriller Syriana. It got him his second Oscar nomination after winning an Oscar for writing Stephen Soderbergh’s Oscar-winning Traffic a few years earlier.
He’s finally back with Gold, a movie loosely based on the real-life Bre-x gold scandal with Matthew McConaughey playing Kenny Wells, a man struggling to keep his father’s mining business alive after his passing. A vision of there being gold in Indonesia, puts him in contact with geologist Michael Acosta (Edgar Ramirez) who believes that he can help Wells find that gold. After a trying start where Kenny almost succumbs to malaria, Acosta finds evidence of gold, which gets many investing in their company, but as with the Bre-x scandal, things weren’t what they seemed.

Bryce Dallas Howard has a confession to make: She thinks about the upcoming shoot for Jurassic World 2 “all the time,” and hopes filming will be easier without her character, Claire, running around in heels like she notably did in the first movie.
“This is assuming she’s prepared,” the actress told Et’s Jennifer Peros while promoting her new film, Gold. “I stand by that Claire is a heels woman in life. She’s also a woman who is incredibly prepared, so, given the opportunity, I don’t think she would choose to run in heels.”
