Splinter Cell Blacklist creative director Maxime Beland wants the action stealth franchise to be "as big as James Bond."
"I really want Splinter Cell to have an amazing movie franchise and to be as big as James Bond," said Beland, in an interview with GamesRadar. "There are some great Bond movies, and they're obviously a big point of reference for us. At the same time, I'm so hungry for a good Splinter Cell movie. I know we're developing one now, and that people are responding to it."
Last year Ubisoft announced a partnership with New Regency to produce a movie on the series of Splinter Cell games, starring Inception's Tom Hardy as central character Sam Fisher.
"Sam Fisher is a great hero," said Beland. "He's interesting, he's different, and the brand has some really iconic images like the three-light goggles. The Splinter Cell world is just so interesting. I think it deserves a great movie."
