Despite the underwhelming big screen adaptation that was 2010’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Jake Gyllenhaal has been tapped for yet another Ubisoft video game-turned-film: Tom Clancy’s The Division. According to Variety, Gyllenhaal will not only star in the film version of the Tom Clancy property, but will act as a producer as well as Ubisoft looks to bring its fastest-selling game of all time (it racked up over $330 million USD in its first five days of availability back in March) to the silver screen.

Gyllenhaal’s link to The Division marks just the latest A-list actor-meets-Ubisoft creation: Michael Fassbender will star as Callum Lynch in this December’s take on Assassin’s Creed while Tom Hardy is still linked to Paramount’s adaptation of Splinter Cell.
