Ubisoft's film development plan continues apace, with screen trade paper Variety reporting Jake Gyllenhaal will star in an adaptation of

Tom Clancy's The Division

Gyllenhaal will also produce the film, much as Michael Fassbender is producing his Assassin's Creed movie.

It is unsurprising Ubisoft would choose to adapt The Division, given the post-plague action game's record-breaking launch earlier this year.

Jake Gyllenhall, of course, starred in the Prince of Persia game-to-film adaptation in 2010, as well as numerous other, better-reviewed films.
