We are in an era where video-game adaptations are once again a hot topic of conversation and gamers everywhere are hoping filmmakers will finally do their favorite properties justice. Back in 2012 it was announced that a film adaptation of the popular video game series Splinter Cell, brought to us by Tom Clancy, was in development. It was also being reported that Tom Hardy was attached to star, but not much movement has been seen on the project since.
It's now being reported that Doug Liman has officially been brought on to direct the film. Liman has previously directed such action films as "The Bourne Identity" and "Mr. And Mrs. Smith" as well as the upcoming Tom Cruise film "Edge of Tomorrow". He has also dabbled with comedy and more edgy films such as "Swingers" and "Go".
A director like Liman seems like a very solid choice to bring a Splinter Cell adaptation to the big-screen, as he's proven he can handle properties in similar veins. Hardy also seems like a great choice to star as the protagonist of the series, Sam Fisher. Hopefully he officially signs on soon and we can get this awesome game adaptation to the big-screen, sooner than later.
