EDGE OF TOMORROW Director Doug Liman Discusses His Take On SPLINTER CELL

Tom Hardy (who will play Sam Fisher) recently revealed that he's unsure what's happening with Splinter Cell as it undergoes a rewrite, but Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman clears that up and hints that the lead character won't have his iconic Multi-Vision goggles...


Talking to IGN Movies, Doug Liman has revealed that his take on Splinter Cell will focus on a slightly younger Sam Fisher, and that he's planning on taking the character back to basics in the big screen adaptation of the video game franchise. As of right now, the Edge of Tomorrow director and star Tom Hardy are actually working together on developing the script. "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." We won't be picking up with the Sam Fisher seen in the current video games though, as it sounds as if this will be more of an origin story for the Tom Clancy creation. "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." However, this new take WILL include the iconic Multi-Vision goggles (pictured above), right? Well... "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." What do you guys think of these comments? Splinter Cell is still expected to be released next year, while Edge of Tomorrow is out next week.
