Hardy to star in Splinter Cell movie

Could be a positive sign of things to come
In what can only be described as a very positive sign moving forward, word is that none other than Tom Hardy has signed on to play Sam Fisher in the Splinter Cell movie. Hardy, who has graced the silver screen in a large number of varied roles, is a hot talent and a very good selection to star in the movie.
What we don’t know is what the script looks like for the film and how much will be based on previous Sam Fisher adventures, or whether the new movie will be an entirely new chapter in the franchise. The reason for so much mystery surrounding the movie is that Ubisoft has yet to secure a final deal with a studio.
Last time we heard about the Splinter Cell movie, word was that Paramount was the studio in the mix; but now we are hearing that Warner Bros might have stepped in and could be the new front runner to get the rights and the movie done.
With the involvement of script writer Eric Warren Singer and now Tom Hardy, this could be what it finally takes to get the title done.
