We've known for a hot minute that Tom Clancy's The Division is getting a film adaptation, but some of the names thrown around have changed. It was revealed today that The Division film project will be directed by David Leitch. He's most famous for directing Deadpool 2 and Atomic Blonde. It will be interesting to see what he has to bring to The Division.
