New Regency Steps in to Release Splinter Cell

New Regency Steps in to Release Splinter Cell
"Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell" will be getting a big screen adaptation by Ubisoft, and New Regency has announced that they will be the ones making it happen.

This will be the second film that New Regency and Ubisoft have paired up to make; "Assassin's Creed", which will star Michael Fassbender, is the first.  "Splinter Cell" will star Tom Hardy.  

Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, 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. For Ubisoft Motion Pictures, creative control is key and New Regency shares our commitment to respecting the creative freedom of our team. Their ability to produce both blockbusters and intriguing indie hits is an ideal fit for the 'Splinter Cell' franchise."

The film will feature Hardy as Sam Fisher, who works in a black-ops operation called Echelon. There is no release date set as of yet.
