Variety is reporting that a new animated series (which it calls anime, so I guess that’s a buzzword now for a type of cartoon and not a fan term for animated series and movies by and for Japan that sometimes gets translated for the West) based on the Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell game franchise for Netflix by the director of the John Wick films. I hope he gets back as many of the game’s voice actors as he can, because they know the characters better than anyone else, but they’ll probably grab some celebrity to play the player character Sam Fisher to get him on the talk shows. That’s all they care about.
The above video is a trailer for one of the games, not the Netflix series by the way. There apparently hasn’t been a new game in years but maybe this will change that? Oooh, maybe with G4 coming back and if they bring back X-Play we can get a guest appearance by Bob and Steve? Yeah, wishful thinking, I know.
