Doug Liman is reportedly in final negotiations to direct Splinter Cell, a film adaptation of Ubisoft's stealth-action game series Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Liman (The Bourne Identity, Mr and Mrs Smith) will be developing the movie with New Regency. Tom Hardy has been named to star in the feature film, which has a planned release date of 2015.

The latest entry in the Splinter Cell series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist, was released in August last year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U. Ubisoft revealed that game sales failed to meet initial targets, selling approximately 2 million copies last year.
