BREAKING: Tom Hardy has become attached to star in the film based on Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell video game, and Eric Warren Singer has been set to write the script.  The project isn’t set up at a studio yet, but is moving forward with the game universe’s France-based company Ubisoft.

Studios have been vying to make a deal for the franchise, with Warner Bros and Paramount recently rumored to be knocking on the door earlier this summer. Singer, who wrote the thriller The International, also scripted the Black List script American Bullshit, which is being made as an untitled drama that David O Russell is directing with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner starring.

The original game, revolves around Sam Fisher, a covert operative who so far has been put on six missions covering six installments of the game that has sold 22 million units and spawned several novels. Hardy will play Fisher. After his recent turns in Warrior, The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Inception, Hardy is on everybody’s most wanted list. He’ll next star in the George Miller-directed Mad Max: Fury Road and is being offered just about every movie these days, it seems.
