One of the very popular video game Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is getting adapted into an anime series, Netlix has teamed up with the Game producer Ubisoft for a 2 Season and 16 episodes series. “John Wick” film series writer Derek Kolstad is onboard to write and executive produce the series.
Netflix has confirmed that series is already in the works with all the above information.
Recently we have heard many games getting live-action and anime series adaptation. Video games like ‘Indivisible,’ ‘CYBERPUNK: EDGERUNNERS’ and ‘Dragon’s Dogma’ are already getting anime series adaptation with ‘Just Cause’ and ‘Fallout’ getting live-action adaptation.
The first “Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell” game was released in 2002 which follows former U.S. Navy SEAL Sam Fisher, a highly trained agent of a fictional black-ops sub-division within the NSA, dubbed "Third Echelon". The game sees Fisher engage in number of black ops missions, employing stealth and military tactics.
The game has total of six sequels as well as a series of novels and the 8th game is already in works.
A “Splinter Cell” film was also announced back in 2012. Tom Hardy was supposed to star as Fisher and Doug Liman joined as director of the film in 2014 but after Liman left the project very next year in 2015, the film has been too slow and hasn't shown any progress.
Kolstad has worked on all three “John Wick” films that have been produced to date, with the films having grossed over $584 million combined worldwide. But this is not the only video game adaptation that Kolstad is writing for, he is also penning the script for the film adaptation of video game ‘Just Cause.’
In 2011, Ubisoft announced that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, and Assassin's Creed were all planned to receive film adaptations, However so far only Assassin's Creed got a film starring Michael Fassbender which didn't succeed as per the company's expectations.
