Splinter Cell movie now has director and star
Doug Liman is set to direct Tom Hardy in the Splinter Cell movie, it's been revealed...
Ever since UbiSoft trumpeted the fact that it was planning to bring many of its videogame properties to the big screen, the attention has mainly been on the Assassin's Creed film, which has Michael Fassbender on board.
However, plans are moving forward to on a big screen outing for the Splinter Cell series (which was originally developed in conjunction with the late Tom Clancy). It's been known for a while that Tom Hardy was on board the project to take the lead role, but now it's been revealed that a director has been found too.
Doug Liman, he of Swingers, The Bourne Identity and the incoming Edge Of Tomorrow fame, is the man tasked with bringing Splinter Cell to the big screen.
We've got no time scale on the project yet, although rumours are suggesting that 2015 isn't out of the question. We shall keep you posted...
