A Splinter Cell film is said to be in discussion at movie studio Paramount Pictures, according to a report on Deadline.

Deadline reveals that the game to movie adaptation had been discussed at Warner Bros. but new talks have made Paramount the frontrunner. No details on the film have been revealed, but Ubisoft are said to want to retain control over how the video game series is translated to the big screen.

Paramount has a history with Tom Clancy movies, having been behind the likes of Patriot Games, The Hunt for Red October, and Clear and Present Danger. It's also currently working with Kenneth Branagh on a reboot of the Jack Ryan Franchise.

Who do you think would make a great Sam?

I've heard the Splinter Cell rumours many times over the last ten years, (along wit many other video game movies), so I'll keep my excitement levels to a minimum for the time being!

Whoever plays Sam will need to lip synch to dialogue read by Michael Ironside - I just can't hear anyone else's voice suiting the part!
