New Regency and Ubisoft team up for Splinter Cell

December 7th, 2012 by Marc Comments

New Regency will team up with Ubisoft Motion Pictures to produce the film version of best-selling video game series ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell’, it has been confirmed.

Ubisoft is expected to be very involved and retain control over how the game is translated into a film.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet said: “With actor Tom Hardy attached and screenwriter Eric Warren Singer to write the script, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will lead the development with the support of New Regency to bring the franchise to the big screen in a dynamic way.”

Only two months ago both companies agreed to develop and produce a film adaptation of the acclaimed ‘Assassin’s Creed’ video game series with Michael Fassbender signed on to star and produce.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
