He was subsequently tapped to take the helm of Deadpool 2 solo while also directing the Charlize Theron actioner Atomic Blonde, and now Ubisoft has tapped Leitch to helm their highly anticipated The Division movie based on the video game of the same name. Gold and Syriana filmmaker Stephen Gaghan subsequently signed on to direct, but he's no longer attached as Variety reports that Leitch is now taking the helm of The Division movie.

The third-person shooter is set in dystopian New York City after a smallpox pandemic.

Tom Clancy's The Division was released on game consoles in 2016 and quickly became Ubisoft's best-selling game ever, generating an estimated $330 million globally in just the first week of release.

Here's the films official logline: "In the near future, a pandemic virus is spread via paper money on Black Friday, decimating the city of NY and killing millions". Ubisoft recently announced that the game reached the milestone of 20 million players and a sequel is in development with more details to be unveiled at E3 next month. By Christmas, what's left of society has descended into chaos. "A group of civilians, trained to operate in catastrophic times, are activated in an attempt to save who and what remains".

The news of Leitch's involvement with The Division can only be a positive thing, as he's successfully brought several major action films to the big screen in either a directorial, producer, or stuntman capacity- some of which include John Wick, Hitman: Agent 47, and The Bourne Legacy.

Leitch is repped by WME and attorney Tara Kole.
