If you are unfamiliar with The Division, it's a third-person role-playing game from Ubisoft that launched in 2016. In the game, a smallpox epidemic engulfs New York City that becomes known as "Green Poison or "The Dollar Flu" as it is initially spread through cash. The main character is part of the Strategic Homeland Division, or The Division, and is tasked with restoring order of the now quarantined Manahattan.
We're not sure which characters Gyllenhaal and Chastain are going to portray, but it is safe to assume they will be the ones responsible for saving New York City.
No word yet on when The Division will got into production at Netflix or when we can expect it. Once we learn more details, we'll be sure to pass them along.
