Splinter Cell is gearing up for its Summer 2015 release!
The New Regency film has acquired Sheldon Turner (Up in the Air, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning) to write the film's screenplay. Deadline reports that Turner is expected to write a new draft, replacing Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle).
Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr. and Mrs. Smith) will direct the film with Tom Hardy set to star as Sam Fisher, agent of the secret organization Third Echelon. Liman will also produce with David Bartis,Basil Iwanyk, and Jean-Julien Baronnet.
Splinter Cell is one of the many projects of Ubisoft Motion Pictures that is expected to hit the big screen. Assassin's Creed starring Michael Fassbender will release August 7, 2015. With how fast Splinter Cell seems to be moving, it could be possible that the film will release before Assassin's Creed.
