Tom Hardy signs up for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell

The Inception actor will play Sam Fisher in Ubisoft's film version of the popular video game. Eric Singer is on writing duties. This new comes only a few months after Asassin's Creed was picked up by Regency and Fox. If this is going to be a trend for action movies in the coming years, we can't complain so long as they keep on casting the likes of Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy.

Have your say: good idea or not? And are there any other games you'd like to have the film treatment?
