Assassin's Creed isn't the only movie that Ubisoft wants to get to the silver screen as soon as possible.
British actor Tom Hardy is reportedly on board to star as Sam Fisher, operative extraordinaire. Hardy most recently took to the silver screen as masked villain Bane in The Dark Knight Rises earlier this year. He also featured in Inception, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and the sadly disappointing Star Trek: Nemesis.
The Splinter Cell game franchise dates back to 2002. The last was 2010's Conviction; the next is 2013's Blacklist.
