It’s been a while since we last reported on any movement on a movie version of the Tom Clancy game “Splinter Cell”. The last time we heard anything on the film version of the stealth game, Ubisoft was packing up their properties and heading off to Hollywood to make their pitch to the studios, along with other titles like “Assassin’s Creed” and “Ghost Recon”.

If that happens, it wouldn’t be the first time Paramount got into the Tom Clancy business. The studio has been making a mint off the author’s Jack Ryan CIA character in a handful of movies for years now.
The first “Splinter Cell” game was released back in 2002, and has spawn five sequels, with a sixth one on the way. The hero of the games is one Sam Fisher, a black-ops operator for the NSA organization known as “Third Echelon” who goes around the world killing people and saving the world. Quietly.
