Ubisoft and New Regency Partnering for Splinter Cell Movie

/ Dec 7th, 2012 No Comments

Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Ubisoft and New Regency announced Thursday they are partnering on the upcoming movie based on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures, which is the film and television division of Ubisoft created nearly two years ago, will develop the Splinter Cell film in close collaboration with production company New Regency. Ubisoft previously announced the movie will star actor Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) and the screenplay will be handled by Eric Warren Singer (The International).

[adsense250itp]“With actor Tom Hardy attached and screenwriter Eric Warren Singer to write the script, Ubisoft Motion Pictures will lead the development with the support of New Regency to bring the franchise to the big screen in a dynamic way,” Ubisoft Motion Pictures CEO Jean-Julien Baronnet said. “For Ubisoft Motion Pictures, creative control is key and New Regency shares our commitment to respecting the creative freedom of our team. Their ability to produce both blockbusters and intriguing indie hits is an ideal fit for the Splinter Cell franchise.”

New Regency and Ubisoft recently arranged a partnership to develop the Assassin’s Creed franchise into a movie starring Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class, Prometheus). The new deal between the companies based on the Splinter Cell franchise is completely separate.

Splinter Cell is an award-winning stealth action video game series that has sold more than 23 million copies since its debut in 2002. The series follows Sam Fisher, a highly-trained special operative in a fictional black-ops sub-division, Echelon. Fisher utilizes combat skills, weapons and cutting-edge gadgets to neutralize terrorist threats and rogue forces in modern stories based in realism. Splinter Cell Blacklist, the next installment of the series, is set for release in Spring 2013.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures launched in January 2011 to expand the audience of the developers popular game brands by bringing them to life in film, television and Web series. In addition to the film adaptations of Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell, the studio is also working in partnership with France Televisions and Nickelodeon on production of the Rabbids television series, a collection of 78 seven-minute CGI episodes based on the insane stars of the video game franchise of the same name.
