Rawson Marshall Thurber will be directing the upcoming The Division Movie. Previously, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch was supposed to direct the movies, but his extremely busy schedule no longer allows this. However, Leitch will stay on as a producer.
The Division’s story is set in a near future where a virus spreads via paper money on Black Friday in New York City. This kills millions of people.What is ultimately left of society around Christmas is nothing less than total chaos. A group of civilians, who are specialized to operate in these kinds of situations, is deployed to save everything that can still be saved. Marshall co-writes the script with Ellen Shanman.
Rawson Marshall Thurber is most known for the movies Skyscraper and Dodgeball. Thurber’s most recent film as a director is Red Notice, a Netflix movie starring Dwayne Johnson, Gal Gadot and Ryan Reynolds that will be released later this year.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Chastain have been associated with the project for several years as protagonists and producers. And that is still the case.
