MOVIES: Tom Hardy tapped for Splinter Cell flick

by

Variety is reporting that Tom Hardy (Bane) has been hired to star in the movie adaptation of Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell videogame.

Hardy will play Sam Fisher, a highly-trained special operative in a fictional black-ops operation called Echelon.

No studio has stepped up on this project, but often having a recognizable name attached to the project gets people to sit up and pay more attention.   With over 23 million copies of Splinter Cell sold, I’m sure there is a lot  more interest in what Ubisoft is doing.  Lately Ubisoft is getting a lot of attention for the game to movie adaptations, previously we’ve been following the Assassin’s Creed movie that is set to star Michael Fassbender.
