The lights are on
Ubisoft and New Regency are teaming up for a movie adaptation of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell starring Dark Knight Rises and Inception's Tom Hardy in the role of Sam Fisher. This official announcement follows rumors circulating earlier this year.
This is the second partnership between the two companies after the Assassin's Creed film deal starring Michael Fassbender, announced in July.
Ubisoft also revealed the screenwriter on the project, Eric Warren Singer. The writer's resume is brief, with only 2009's The International credited so far. Check out the trailer below.
“For Ubisoft Motion Pictures, creative control is key and New Regency shares our commitment to respecting the creative freedom of our team," chief executive officer of Ubisoft Motion Pictures Jean-Julien Baronnet says in a statement. "Their ability to produce both blockbusters and intriguing indie hits is an ideal fit for the Splinter Cell franchise.”
Ubisoft has not revealed a projected release date for the film at this time.
