New Regency And Ubisoft Eager To Mould Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell Into Movie Franchises

Throughout their long and storied histories in the video game space, both Assassin’s Creed and Splinter Cell have gone on to become lucrative juggernauts – particularly the former, even when you factor in that Ubisoft has ordered the clandestine series on a one-year hiatus.

That’s something Us producer New Regency is keen to replicate on the big screen. Currently, both properities are on course to be adapted into live-action features, even if they are at different ends of the production spectrum. Assassin’s Creed, for instance, is currently simmering in post, with Justin Kurzel’s time-hopping adventure flick on course to swoop into theaters in December of this year. As for Doug Liman’s rendition of Splinter Cell, it holds a tentative 2017 release date.
