Ubisoft pushing Splinter Cell flick

The wheels on the movie adaptation of Splinter Cell have begun turning again, Deadline is reporting (via), with Ubisoft shopping the property around Hollywood.

Warner Bros. has apparently shown interest, but the main party at the table now is Paramount Pictures, which is “the frontrunner to land the project,” the site writes.

If and once the dotted lines are signed, Ubisoft is said to be “very involved and retain control over how the game is translated into a film.”

Paramount has previously adapted Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan stories.
