Tom Hardy's Splinter Cell movie gets a new writer

Splinter Cell Tom Hardy

A new scribe has been tapped to write the SPLINTER CELL movie. According to Deadline, Frank John Hughes will pen the next draft of the script for the planned video game adaptation for New Regency and Ubisoft. Hughes only has two writing credits to his name (DARK TOURIST, LEAVE), but as an actor, he's probably best known for his roles in CATCH ME IF YOU CAN, MR. VINCENT, and HBO's Band of Brothers and The Sopranos. Eric Warren Singer and Sheldon Turner have both worked on previous drafts of the script.

While Tom Hardy is still set to play Sam Fisher, the project needs a director since Doug Liman reportedly left the film earlier this year, although it looks like he's still attached to it as a producer. With Liman no longer directing, which filmmaker do you think would be a good fit to bring the video game to the big screen?

Production on SPLINTER CELL probably won't begin this year as originally planned, so the earliest the movie will likely be released is late 2016.

As long as Tom Hardy is still playing the lead, I'm okay. As for the director, I agree with Crazy_bull below: Joe Carnahan.

This looks like a job for John McTiernan. In an alternate universe, he would be at the helm for this film, after giving us another good "Die Hard". Again, this is all happening in an alternate universe.

Good to see it's still happening despite being a slow burn.
My choice to direct...how about Peter Berg?

What about... Gareth Evans of The Raid? Then we can get Tom Hardy/Sam Fisher Vs Mad Dog.
