Splinter Cell Filming Start Unknown

Those keenly anticipating the film adaptation of the “Splinter Cell” video game series may have to cool their jets. Filming was supposed to begin in August, at least until a new script draft was ordered which Sheldon Turner began work on.

Now, the film’s star Tom Hardy tells Collider he’s not sure when the movie will begin principal photography:

“Can’t say. You never know with these things. I’d like to be able to say, but shift in geography finances and those things. Every draft has been different and grown and changed and whatnot. It’s going to be cool.”

Should the film go ahead, Hardy would play a highly-trained black ops operative working for Echelon, a group tasked with neutralizing terrorist threats around the world.
