Ubisoft Motion Pictures and New Regency today announced the partnership that will go into producing the Splinter Cell film feature. The movie, which is set to star Tom “You fight like a younger man” Hardy, is not the only Ubisoft-related project that New Regency is attached to. Earlier this year, New Regency announced that they are also signed on to produce the Assassin’s Creed movie alongside Ubisoft.
CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures, Jean-Julien Baronnet, had this to say about the partnership:
“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. 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.”
It looks like they’re pretty enthused about the project, which I guess makes one of us.
