Doug Liman To Direct Splinter Cell And More

We saw Doug Liman doing movies in almost all genre, he was seen developing projects like “Attica,” an adaptation of Olen Steinhauer’s “The Tourist,”  the documentary “Reckoning With Torture: Memos And Testimonies From The War On Terror” and a big-screen version of Jack Finney’s “Time And Again.” He also tried his luck on comedy with his projects like “El Presidente” with Tom Cruise and the former Tony Scott project, “Narco Sub.” And now he is said to head for a big time video game adaption.

Liman is in final talks to direct “Splinter Cell,” with Tom Hardy to play the lead role. It been leant that  Eric Singer (“American Hustle, “”The International”) has penned the script about the adventures of terrorist-fighting spy Sam Fisher. Production is fixed to start in August with plans to release the movie in 2015.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that Focus Features has bought up the Black List script “Times Square”. Taylor Materne and Jacob Rubin have been appointed to pen the script for the crime thriller “set in the last days of the old Times Square. In that backdrop, when a secret from his past is unveiled, a young man’s loyalties are divided between his neighborhood boss who raised him and the grizzled ex-cop who swore to protect him.”

Last but not the least, Haifaa Al Mansour, is up with his next project, “A Storm In the Stars.” Written by Emma Jensen, the unique premise follows “the tumultuous love affair between dangerously charismatic poet Percy Shelley and the brilliant and beautiful 18-year-old Mary Wollstonecraft.” Wow. Production is aiming to begin late this year, or early next”.
