‘Splinter Cell’ Movie Grabs ‘Bourne Identity’ Director Doug Liman
  |  @   |  

In case you weren’t aware, Ubisoft is on a mission to change the way people look at movies based on video games…which is, generally, quite poorly. They have movies in development based on many of their game franchises, including Assassin’s Creed, Ghost Recon, Watch Dogs, and Splinter Cell.

We first heard about the Splinter Cell project about two years ago now, and later that The Dark Knight Rises and Inception star Tom Hardy was attached to the lead role, Sam Fisher. Now comes word that a director is in sight.

It’s being reported that Doug Liman, who made The Bourne Identity back in 2002, is now in final negotiations to helm Splinter Cell.

‘The Dark Knight Rises’ Star Tom Hardy Joins ‘Splinter Cell’ Movie
  |  @   |  

Back in June, we found out that Ubisoft’s hit video game series, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, was being made into a movie. Most people tend to shrug off video games being turned into movies, as they tend to be on the not-so-enjoyable side of the line. But now comes word of a fast-rising superstar joining the cast.

Tom Hardy, who played Bane in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy-maker, The Dark Knight Rises, and also starred in films such as Inception and Lawless, has signed on for a role in the Splinter Cell movie. The script will be written by Eric Warren Singer (The International).

E3 2012: ‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ Gameplay Demo
  |  @   |  

I’d never played a Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell game until recently when I tired out and loved Splinter Cell: Conviction. The games are renown for their stealth gameplay and your ability to quickly and quietly eliminate enemies by the deadly hands of the one and only Sam Fisher.

Ubisoft was on fire at this year’s E3, bringing a ton of first looks at a lot of exciting games. One of them was the newest title in the Splinter Cell franchise, titled Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

The game looks like a SC game, but the most notable improvement is even more fluid movement from kill to kill. Fisher takes them out with the best of them, and it looks like Blacklist has him more deadly than ever.

Check out the first peek at Splinter Cell: Blacklist on the other side!
