Possible Splinter Cell Movie Could Star Bane

Rumors are circulating that Ubisoft is working to get a Splinter Cell movie off the ground, and Tom Hardy -- who recently played Bane in this summers The Dark Knight Rises -- could be on tap for the lead role.

Ain't It Cool News recently reported that Ubisoft is moving to build up a film division that would produce films based on it's many popular franchises. Not only is Michael Fassbender (Prometheus and Inglourious Basterds) being looked at for a film version of Assassin's Creed, but Hardy is being asked to star in the Splinter Cell film. According to Variety, Eric Warren Singer (The International) is apparently already working on a script for Splinter Cell. Who knows how far into production these films will actually venture -- Hollywood projects have a tendency to fizzle out -- but it would be interesting to see if these films actually make it into the theater.

Would would you like to see direct these films?
