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.

Are you pleased with Liman directing this film? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.

    My hope would be that someday, Marvel Studios can reach an agreement to have him appear, at least as a cameo, in one of the Phase 3 films. Maybe as a possible recruit in the Infinity War against Thanos.
