Tom Hardy is a Splinter Cell

Hardy makes the transition from supervillain in The Dark Knight Rises to hero as Sam Fisher in the upcoming film adaptation of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.

I haven’t heard much about Ubisoft’s film adaptation of the Splinter Cell series in a while but this is a pretty big piece of news. According to the industry magazine Variety, the Dark Knight Rises actor Tom Hardy will indeed be strapping on the night vision goggles of Clancy-verse hero Sam Fisher (no Michael Ironside, sorry kids).

The film may have a star, but doesn’t even have a studio as of yet- though that may be taken care of sooner than later as well. Ubi has been talking to both Warner Bros and Paramount, and with the signing of Hardy (who instantly gives the movie some big time credit), I can’t imagine it’ll be too long before we hear something.
