Looks like the Hollywood studio people were creeping around E3 last week in LA and saw the awesome preview of Ubisoft's new Splinter Cell: Blacklist game. Or maybe they just saw Tom Clancy's name on the sign and thought it was a new novel.

Considering that there have already been six Splinter Cell games, it seems like they took a long time to notice. Plus how many good movies have been inspired by video games? (Answer: zero)
