Default Splinter Cell movie news: Who's playing Sam Fisher? Some guy that played Bane I guess



Earlier today Collider reported that Eric Singer was being brought on to pen the film adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Spliter Cell video games. Now, Variety brings news that Tom Hardy will star in the upcoming film.


For those who don’t know, Splinter Cell is a popular video game franchise based on Tom Clancy novels. Hardy will play highly-trained special operative named Sam Fisher in what should be yet another role that the young actor can thrive in. A strong, silent character such as Fisher is perfect for an actor who’s shown he’s at his best when his character is required to convey thoughts and emotion without extensive lines (see Warrior).

Check out the statement from Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures.
“Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills. His involvement in the ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell’ movie is exciting news for movie and video game fans alike. Meanwhile, Eric Singer is one of the most talented writers of the moment, and … we’re confident he’ll bring a fresh approach and create a thrilling story … while still respecting all the codes and traditions of the franchise that are so important to fans.”
Six Splinter Cell games have been released so far on consoles, with another one, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, coming in the spring. This will be Ubisoft’s second video game film currently in production, as Michael Fassbender is set to co-produce and star in an Assassin’s Creed film. Between Fassbender and Hardy, I think the Ubisoft has a pretty good chance of seeing their games turned into very successful films.

I love the SC games but I just don't think it that it will translate into an interesting movie. As a video game it's fantastic but as a movie there have already been tons of movies like it and the only thing that will differentiate it from the rest is the name attached to it. Hardy is awesome though, so at least there is that.

Just read about this. Very interesting. Big fan of both Hardy and the franchise, and my skepticism turned into AW HELL YEAH fast. Brilliant, why hadn't I even thought of this? Fantasy casting video game films is what happens in my head a lot. Still, a future sequel with Old Man Clooney portraying Old Man Fisher is mandatory.

I love Hardy but unfortunatley this is just going to be another action blockbuster.

I could see them adapting either Double Agent or Conviction. Those seem to be the more story heavy ones.

But I can't see them including a lot of stealth action.

Didn't anyone ever tell you that spelunking is dangerous?
Oh no! You're going to kill me, right?
Only if you say the word 'monkey'.
Some of you guys are real helpful. Why do you have to work for the bad guys?
You are the American oppressor. You're the bad guy.
Are you gonna say monkey?
What?? No!
Then this conversation is over.

Hardy fucking owns, but I don't have high hopes for this tbh. The games are cool, but there's never been a game that's translated well to a film so far, but hopefully this has a good director and it can be decent. I'm sure Hardy will give the movie some watch-ability no matter what though.
