There has been a lot of big news in the movie world about video game adaptations, and another huge title has been added to the list.
Late last year (still feels weird to say) it was announced that Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) had signed on to the adaptation of “Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell,” Michael Fassbender (“Prometheus”) signed on to “Assassin’s Creed,” Aaron Paul (AMC’s “Breaking Bad”) signed on to “Need for Speed,” a new writer was hired for both “Gears of War” and “Asteroids,” director Scott Derrickson (“Sinister”) signed on to helm “Deus Ex: Human Revolution,” and now another Tom Clancy game is in the works.
First released in 2001, the series has spawned nine games so far, and is still releasing more.
In the original game the player is put in charge of a U.S. Army Special Forces squad and led into dangerous missions, but they have futuristic technology that differs it from similar themed action pieces.
I think just like comic book adaptations became a huge hit all-of-the-sudden this is the start of video games doing the same thing, and I couldn't be more excited.
