– The HUB Network announced that a new Transformers animated series will be created for 2015. It will take place in the same continuity as previous show, Transformers Prime, but will be set years after and will centre on the fan favourite; Bumblebee, who will be leading the Autobot team.

– Doug Liman, director of The Bourne Identity, is rumoured to be directing a movie based on the hit game, Splinter Cell. The game follows super spy, Sam Fisher, who works for an agency called Third Echelon. It has been suggested that Tom Hardy will be playing the role of Fisher. The movie is looking at a 2015 release date.

– The Incredibles 2 is finally being developed by Pixar. It’s been ten years since the animated movie, Incredibles, was released, so fans have been waiting for a sequel for a really long time. A release date has not yet been confirmed. Cars 3 has also been announced.

– The UK start times for Elder Scrolls have been released. The official launch isn’t until 12am on the 4th April, but if you pre-ordered the digital edition from Bethesda’s online store, you will be able to access it from 12pm on 30th March. If you pre-ordered from a retailer, you can access it from 12pm on the 1st April.

– Warner Brothers have announced that Andy Serkis will be directing their new live-action adaption of The Jungle Book. This has come as quite a shock to all, because Disney are also doing a live-action adaption of The Jungle Book, only theirs will be directed by Jon Favreau. Disney’s is of course going to be a family friendly take on the classic, whereas Serkis is going to be directing a much darker adaption. Which is going to come out on top?
