SPLINTER CELL: Tom Hardy Cast in Tom Clancy Video Game Film Adaptation

Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy Cast in Splinter Cell. The casting of Tom Hardy in Splinter Cell answers the question of who will play the lead character in the live action  adaptation of Tom Clancy‘s Ubisoft video game. Eric Warren Singer is writing the script for the film. “At the center of the movie is Sam Fisher, a black-ops agent who works for a top-secret NSA sub-agency called Echelon. The video game series upon which the film will be based has yielded six installments so far, with a seventh titled Splinter Cell: Blacklist due out in the spring, so there should be plenty of material for Singer to work with.”

On the momentum behind the film:

Splinter Cell gained some steam recently when Warner Bros. and Paramount began competing for the project. The latter seems especially interested in Clancy at the moment, as it’s also working on Without Remorse and the Jack Ryan reboot. (Though technically speaking, the author’s actual input on the Splinter Cell games doesn’t go that far beyond stamping his name on them.) No director is attached at this time.
