Tom Hardy Attached to Splinter Cell Adaptation

Collider:
After reporting that screenwriter Eric Singer (The International) would be adapting the Ubisoft game Splinter Cell for the big screen, word has come out that none other than Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) is attached to star. Hardy will play special operative Sam Fisher, the character who kicked off the video game franchise that will release its seventh installment next spring. The project is not yet set up at a studio, but Ubisoft has talked to Warner Bros. and Paramount. Moving forward, Ubisoft presumably looks to retain a majority of control over creative development as has become characteristic of the company since its Prince of Persia feature adaptation. Hit the jump for more. (Cinema, Splinter Cell 3D, Tom Hardy)

I'll see just about anything he does now that I know how talented he is.

yay. Someone that can actually pull it off. Would have shot myself in the foot if someone like ryan reynolds got hired.
