Activision Publishing CEO Eric Hirshberg announced during his presentation at the 13th Annual Pacific Crest Global Technology Leadership Forum in Vail, Colorado that directors Ridley Scott and Tony Scott are working on content for Call of Duty Elite.

Hirshberg said Activision is developing “exclusive episodic entertainment”, built just for the Call of Duty community. Other Hollywood types already announced as working on content for the firm are Bennett Miiler, along with Will Arnett and Jason Bateman.

Ben Silverman, the executive producer for The Office, is also working on content, according to Hirshberg.

“Just like any other passion that people spend a lot of their free time doing, Call of Duty players share a common language and a common experience and we think we can create some entertainment content that they will love and talk about and share,” he said.

Activision is holding its Call of Duty XP event in L.A. September 2-3, and there will be more information on Elite announced at the event.
