New Regency and Ubisoft team up for Splinter Cell

December 7th, 2012 by bash 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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
