Back in November, Activision Blizzard announced that they were going to pursue projects in film and television. An animated Skylanders TV series as well as a “robust cinematic universe” based on Call of Duty were also announced during that press conference. Earlier this week, Activision Blizzard announced that they have hired Quentin Tarantino’s producer, Stacey Sher, to help their Film and Television division. Sher has collaborated on a number of films including The Hateful Eight, Reno 911, Django Unchained, and Pulp Fiction.
“As its large and loyal fanbase can attest, Activision Blizzard has created franchises that mean so much to audiences over the course of 35 years. I’m excited about our mandate to create filmed entertainment based on Activision Blizzard games that is as great as the games themselves. I look forward to joining Nick, Bobby, and the insanely talented and forward-thinking team at Activision Blizzard to develop an even greater voice for these franchises by bringing them into the world of television and film.” — Stacey Sher
With Sher’s track record, I am sure that she will make Activision’s TV and Film division successful. We wish Stacey Sher the best of luck!
