Project is the second major movie based on one of its properties that Ubisoft is looking to get on the bigscreen after setting up “Assassin’s Creed” at New Regency and Fox, that Michael Fassbender will co-produce and headline.
 

“Splinter Cell” is not yet set up at a studio, although Ubisoft has had preliminary talks with Warner Bros. and Paramount.
 

Hardy will play Sam Fisher, a highly-trained special operative in a fictional black-ops operation called Echelon.
 

He recently played Bane in WB’s “The Dark Knight Rises” and is shooting “Mad Max: Fury Road.”
 

Singer also penned Black List script “American Bullshit,” which David O. Russell will direct with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner set to star.
 

“Tom Hardy is currently one of the biggest talents in the film industry, and he has a phenomenal ability to take on complex and varied roles with his broad range of acting skills,” said Jean-Julien Baronnet, CEO of Ubisoft Motion Pictures. “His involvement in the ‘Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell’ movie is exciting news for movie and video game fans alike. Meanwhile, Eric Singer is one of the most talented writers of the moment, and … we’re confident he’ll bring a fresh approach and create a thrilling story … while still respecting all the codes and traditions of the franchise that are so important to fans.”
 

Game has sold more than 23 million copies since its debut in 2002. Six games have been released so far with “Splinter Cell: Blacklist,” released next spring, developed by Ubisoft Toronto.
