Hi Guys,

Please tell me that i'm not the only one who wants them to make a totally awesome Splinter Cell movie after the events that occured in Conviction! So much stuff was revealed and so much happened in the game that i want more... and this time i want to take a back seat... i wanna see action... i wanna see a hot 20 year old Sarah Fisher... i don't want Bruce Willis to play Sam because i think he'd be too angry for the role... Sam was disturbed in Conviction and we need someone to portray that! I also wanna see flashbacks with Reagan and Sam, Sam's past and especially things to do with Lambert! Like why he did what he did with Sarah... i mean we know why... but i want to see Samuel L Jackson's face when he finds out about the death threats... oh didn't i mention i want Samuel L Jackson to play Lambert and Willem Dafoe or James Woods (i know he did the voice in the game) to play Tom Reed.

Let me know your thoughts!

A Splinter Cell film would be a disappointment just like every other video game movie.

The interactivity is what makes a video game fun. Watching a video game based film is like watching someone else playing the game. It's boring.

I see what your saying but look at Hitman. I've played all the games and loved every minute of it, however, the film just gave a whole new experience and feel to franchise. To me it made the franchise seem that much more real in a way.

When you are playing a game, don't you want to be able to do anything like taking a piss or other mundane tasks like that? When you see a character eat, sleep, drink laugh etc in a film that you don't really see in a game, then it's easier to believe in the whole idea in my opinion.

I found a script review for it back in the day.

Yeah I see how, so far, game tie-ins have been a little p!sh. But I don't see a problem with making a film using characters from a game and not trying to tie it in with the games.

Plus, I love talking about them and who should play who even if there's no film.

Liev Schreiber for Sam and Ironside has to have a wee cameo.

I actually enjoyed Hitman but you have to admit it was an awful film. Just had three things going for it:

1. Timothy Olyphant (who I've loved since Deadwood)
2. Return of 80's style gratuitous nudity and in particular, gratuitous Olga Kurylenko nudity, and
3. I quite enjoyed the games

I don't think a Splinter Cell film should be made although generally I'm against most game adaptations because I really don't think they add anything to the series.

Basically games are becoming more cinematic themsevles anyway to the point where a lot will feel like interactive films (Heavy Rain is the best recent example). I know it's all about money but from a creative point of view there's no reason for the films to exist; look at Max Payne - the games were more cinematic than that piece of Wahlberg shit.

Bioshock, Mass Effect and now Splinter Cell - they're all perfect as they are and films are totally unnecessary as they'll probably significanrly deviate story wise so the name is retained but all else is different so again what's the point? Modern games in the RPG/adventure category usually focus as much on plot as they do on gameplay so let them continue to bridge the gap between film and game. When you leave it films they're bad (Max Payne, Prince of Persia), worse (Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil) or just plain embarassing (Super Mario Bros).

i've never sat and played any of the splinter cell games but conviction looks awesome... i have to say i agree with most people when they say its a terrible idea, video games are more or less interactive movies so when you adapt a movie from it it just deducts from the experience.


.....i've never been the same since they made that hitman movie haha

So Hardy is Fisher. I wonder how much of Beattie's original script remains or if Peter Berg is still the favourite to direct.

Well you should have stopped there really. The fact its they are all bad films, and this won't be any different.

Nothing against Tom Hardy, but where is Michael Ironside? Mind boggling decision not to include him. Who cares about the visual difference, they could make it work.

I'm sorry but how can you possibly know this before you've even seen the finished film?

Jeez - such pessimism on these boards lately.
