Activision today announced that it has enlisted the voice talents of Jason Statham and Giovanni Ribisi for Call of Duty. Accomplished screenwriter and producer Michael Schiffer, whose previous credits include Crimson Tide and The Peacemaker, is also contributing to the game's action-packed script.

"From the start, Call of Duty has been created to be the most authentic, intense, and realistic battlefield experience as lived through the eyes of common soldiers," said Dusty Welch, vice president of global brand management, Activision. "With Jason and Giovanni contributing their proven acting talents, we've added even more life and personality to our key characters. Combined with Michael's work on the screenplay, we've made sure that Call of Duty fans have fun identifying with the characters and yet also become immersed in an enveloping storyline that surrounds them in the chaos of war."

Call of Duty, which is currently in development at Infinity Ward, is a first-person shooter in which players will do battle with Axis forces in 24 missions. As they progress through the game, players will assume the roles of various soldiers from the American, British, and Russian armies.

Call of Duty is currently scheduled for release in November. For more information, check out our previous coverage of the game.
