I suppose it was just a matter of time before UbiSoft‘s huge hitter, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, was movie-fied. The talks have been going between Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. recently, but no official studio has been announced for this motion picture just yet. Regardless, we can expect UbiSoft to be fairly involved in the whole process.
The original game follows the main character, Sam Fisher, who is a covert operative in the Third Echelon, a faction of the National Security Agency. Since its release in 2002, numerous novels have been written in the Tom Clancy ‘verse and several video game sequels.
We’ll keep y’all updated as more news becomes available, of course. In the meantime, what do you guys think of a Splinter Cell movie? Is there anything in particular you’d like to see addressed in the film(s)?
