Splinter Cell Will Become a Movie

Splinter Cell movie in the works!

Last year it was confirmed that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, will be produced into a movie. There has  been confirmation that Tom Hardy, who played The Dark Knight Rises' Bane, will be starring as Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell. Basil Iwanykm, producer of Mindhunters, Clash of the Titans, and The Expendables among others, has also joined this project as a producer. 

According to The Examiner, Ubisoft has been reported to be talking to several studios about projecting Splinter Cell onto the big screen. Decision seems to be between Warner Bros. or Paramount, with the latter being the front runner. This is suspected to be because the studio has had a long history with Tom Clancy (author of the Splinter Cell books, but not creator of the Splinter Cell game). 

Although Paramount has closely developed Tom Clancy's novels into movies in the past, it is said that Splinter Cell will be closely related to the video game and not the books in which they originate from. 

There is much hope that the movie will be a success. What are your thoughts? Is Splinter Cell something you would like to see on the big screen? Do you think this will be a successful film, or not? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

    I love Tom Hardy as the lead. That producer has a bad filmography though. I'm super hopeful for it, I just can't get myself excited until I see some footage.
