Tom Hardy Confirmed For Splinter Cell Movie

Tom Hardy, known for his roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Inception and Sweeney Todd, has been confirmed to star in the upcoming Splinter Cell film. Hardy will take on the role as Sam Fisher, protagonist of the franchise. Fisher is known for his focused, sarcastic and loyal characteristics.

Ubisoft’s Jean-Julien Baronnet confirmed:

“Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills”… “His involvement in the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell movie is exciting news for movie and video game fans alike. Meanwhile, Eric Singer is one of the most talented writers of the moment, and … we’re confident he’ll bring a fresh approach and create a thrilling story … while still respecting all the codes and traditions of the franchise that are so important to fans.”

This news may not be so surprising to some, as last month Ubisoft announced they’re also working on an Assassin’s Creed movie.
