We recently saw some major movement on the feature film adaptation of the video game series Splinter Cell as Warner Bros. and Paramount were both competing for the rights to produce the adaptation, and now it looks like things are moving right along as a screenwriter has been tapped to pen the screenplay for the feature film.  We’ve learned that Eric Singer, who penned director Tom Tykwer’s 2009 thriller The International starring Clive Owen, has been tapped by Ubisoft to get to work on the script for the film iteration of Splinter Cell.

For those unfamiliar, the Splinter Cell video game series follows the adventures of a covert operative named Sam Fisher.  There have been six games in the series thus far, with the seventh set for release next spring.  Hit the jump to watch the trailer for the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
