Splinter Cell


Recommended Posts

Paramount has acquired film rights to Tom Clancy's video game Splinter Cell and hired Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) to direct.

Variety says Berg is writing the script along with Splinter Cell game writer J.T. Petty and John J. McLaughlin (Man of the House). Paramount said the movie is aimed at combining the game's blend of stealth action with a "dynamic, original" character.

The game, now in its second edition, follows the adventures of government spy Sam Fisher as he's dispatched to infiltrate an international terrorist syndicate and stop a high-tech threat.

Published by Ubisoft, Splinter Cell has been one of the most successful "stealth" action games. The first two games in the series, "Splinter Cell" and "Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow," have already sold more than 6 million units worldwide, and a third, "Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory," is slated for release in March.

I wonder who they're going to get to play Fisher, because whoever it is better sound a whole Hell of a lot like Michael Ironside (who voices the character).
