A Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell movie is being touted around Hollywood, according to reports.
Apparently, Warner Bros. was once considering the option to turn the stealth-based series into a movie, but now Paramount pictures are interested.
Deadline New York writes, “I’ve heard that in recent weeks, Warner Bros had engaged in talks, but now, the conversation is with Paramount Pictures, which is the frontrunner to land the project.
“The studio would not comment other than to say there is no deal."
According to the report, Ubisoft are keen to keep a degree of creative control over the project, while Paramount have a history of Tom Clancy movies. They’re currently making a reboot of the Jack Ryan franchise (The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games), with Chris Pine (Star Trek's Kirk) as the lead and Kenneth Branagh (Thor) on directorial duties.
