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.

The Division film has no director as of yet, and is currently grinding for writers to adapt the game for the big screen.

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.

Aside from Assassin's and The Division, Ubisoft's film slate also includes Splinter Cell, set to star Tom Hardy.
