He has a "great take" on the story...
Doug Liman says that the Splinter Cell movie is moving ahead nicely. Limon told IGN that he's developing the script right now with Tom Hardy, who will play Sam Fisher in the film.
Liman told the site, "I'm working on the script with Tom Hardy. I think we have a great take on how to make an awesome film out of that."
As to Hardy playing the character, who is older in the game franchise, he said, "Everything about Splinter Cell will be younger. It's a chance to come up with a new franchise that is fresher and newer and younger, and Tom Hardy is such an incredible actor."
He continued, "Some of the tropes of the game will for sure be in the film, but also the fun of that is when you lose them. To strip that stuff away and really make the character have to operate without it."
