Screenwriter Sheldon Turner had written a screenplay for a Mount Everest movie set to star Tom Hardy and be directed by Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity).  That film was going to center on George Mallory, who tried to scale the mountain, but disappeared during his ascent.  However, that movie has fallen apart because Baltasar Kormakur’s Everest is already filming (it’s about a present day group of climbers) and will reach theaters first.  Turner, Hardy, and Liman are now reuniting for another project: an adaptation of Ubisoft’s popular video game series, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell.  According to Deadline, Turner will write a new draft of the script, and production is gearing up to shoot in August.  Turner will then go direct the “modern day Western”, Borderland.

For those unfamiliar with Splinter Cell, the games center on Sam Fisher, a black ops agent who uses stealth to carry out his missions.  I’ve personally never played any of the Splinter Cell games because I find stealth games tedious unless they’re from the Batman: Arkham series where Batman pretty much has all the power, and it’s hilarious to watch the bad guys freak out.  Hit the jump to check out a trailer for the most recent Splinter Cell game, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist.

    Now they have to cast the rest of the main characters including Sams daughter , Grimm and Lambert . If only Clancy was still alive to exec produce and keep them from straying too far away fro the source material.

    Excellent! Will it take place in the same continuity as Jack Ryan, or am I going to have to keep track of multiple Clancy-verses?

    Goldberg, why do you think this stupid detail is important is beyond me. Why are you even reporting it if you know jack shit about the source material? You suck.

    Is there not anyone on the Collider team that has played Splinter Cell that could’ve done this article. Then we could’ve had just a little bit more in sight into the news. Also Dennis Haysbert HAS to play Lambert, as he voices him in one or more of the games.
