Splinter Cell headed to the big screen

June 15th, 2012 by Marc 1 Comment

Top selling game franchise, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, is being brought to the big screen.

Deadline said the project is currently looking for a studio and that plans are “relatively nascent”.

The first game was released in 2002 and set in 2004, following the adventures of Sam Fisher.

Since then the franchise has had several sequels including, most recently, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction, released in 2010.

A new game, Blacklist is planned for release early next year.

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….
