The script writer for Everest...
Splinter Cell has gained a new writer. Deadline reports that the video game adaptation, which stars Tom Hardy and will be directed by Doug Liman, has had Sheldon Turner (Everest) come on board to write it. The initial script was written by Eric Warren Singer (American Hustle).
The new script is being called a "new draft," which suggests it will not be a page one rewrite job. It is based on the game franchise that follows the adventures of Sam Fisher, a covert operative assigned to a top-secret National Security Agency branch called the Third Echelon.
