Posted on Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 by Angie Han
Tom Hardy‘s all set to enter the world of Tom Clancy, but it’s not in the way we previously suspected. A couple of months back, we got word that Paramount wanted the Dark Knight Rises actor to lead the Christopher McQuarrie-directed Without Remorse. Instead, he’s signed on for the Ubisoft video game adaptation Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell, in the lead role.
Meanwhile, Splinter Cell is making some progress on the other side of the camera as well. Eric Singer, who penned Tom Tykwer’s The International, has just been tapped to write the script. More details after the jump.
