Assassin's Creed isn't the only movie that Ubisoft wants to get to the silver screen as soon as possible.
British actor Tom Hardy is reportedly on board to star as Sam Fisher, operative extraordinaire. Hardy most recently took to the silver screen as masked villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises earlier this year. He also featured in Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and the sadly disappointing Star Trek: Nemesis.
The Splinter Cell game franchise dates back to 2002. The last was 2010's Conviction; the next is 2013's Blacklist.

Sam Fisher is sneaking into the world of comics. Splinter Cell: Echoes is an upcoming graphic novel written by Nathan Edmondson and illustrated by Marc Laming that promises to bridge the gap between Splinter Cell: Conviction and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Perhaps the comic can also explain how Fisher is inexplicably getting younger in every iteration--and why his voice has changed so much?
Speaking to IGN, Edmonson says that while there will be "fan-service," the comic has been adapted in a way to be approachable to non-gamers as well. "We treat the characters and story in the same way we would if this was our original creation," he said.
