After recent uncertainties about the Splinter Cell movie, it seems that director Doug Liman and actor Tom Hardy are busy working on the script. The movie was supposed to start filming in August, however, previously unknown delays has pushed the start date back. And while promoting his latest film, Edge of Tomorrow, Doug Liman discussed the pre-production process that has forced the studio to reconsider their original start date.
“I’m working on the script with Tom Hardy, I think we have a great take on how to make an awesome film out of that. Everything about Splinter Cell will be younger. It’s a chance to come up with a new franchise that is fresher and newer and younger, and Tom Hardy is such an incredible actor.”
Since, Tom Hardy is too young to play the older Sam Fisher, I assumed that they would attempt to make the character younger or perhaps do a ‘sort of’ prequel. But there is no indication of how they will introduce this iteration of the famous spy; if both Hardy and Liman are working on the script, I have faith that they will do the hero justice. With that said, fans have been wondering if the director will use elements from the game, including the iconic ‘Multi-Vision Goggles.’
