Splinter Cell Gets a Director
Paramount has recently acquired the film rights to Tom Clancy's video game "Splinter Cell" and has hired Peter Berg (Friday Night Lights) to direct the movie adaptation.
Variety says Berg is writing the script along with Splinter Cell game writer J.T. Petty and John J. McLaughlin. The movie is aimed at combining the game's blend of stealth action with a "dynamic, original" character.
