Splinter Cell Movie In The Works

Paramount has recently acquired film rights to Tom Clancy’s video game Splinter Cell and hired Peter Berg to direct the movie.

Berg is writing the script along with Splinter Cell game writer J.T. Petty and John J. McLaughlin. Paramount said the movie is aimed at combining the game’s blend of stealth action with a “dynamic, original” character.

The first two games in the series, “Splinter Cell” and “Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow,” have already sold more than 6 million units worldwide, and a third, “Splinter Cell Chaos Theory,” is slated for release in March. Paramount hope the film will do as well if not better than the game has done but only time will tell.
