- SPLINTER CELL
Ubisoft's best-selling video game franchise, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, is headed to the big screen, Deadline reports. The project is currently looking for a studio to call home.
The first game was released in 2002 and set in 2004, following the adventures of Sam Fisher, a covert operative assigned to a top-secret National Security Agency branch called the Third Echelon.
The games have had several sequels including, most recently, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, released in 2010. However, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, a new game in the franchise, is in development and will be released sometime next year. You can check out the trailer below for the game.
At the moment, plans for a big screen version of Splinter Cell are relatively nascent, but we should say that this isn’t the first time that Ubisoft have tried to get Sam Fisher on to the big screen.
Ubisoft even added a teaser trailer for a film, to Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory (Release Date 2005). The film was supposedly to be released in late 2006 or early 2007, but failed to materialize.
So don’t get too excited for this one, because it just might not happen. But hey, ANYTHING is possible. We will keep you updated on this one.
