Angela Bassett on Playing a Badass in ‘Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege’ (Video)

5 October 2015 7:26 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Angela Bassett is gearing up for battle in “Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Siege.” The actress is no stranger to playing a badass on screen. She portrayed Secret Service director Lynn Jacobs in 2013’s “Olympus Has Fallen” and CIA director Hayden Chase in the ABC series “Alias.” So, stepping into the role of Six, deputy director of the international Rainbow Six counter-terrorism unit, was a natural transition. “I think I have a little bit of experience with that … being the boss,” Bassett told TheWrap in a wide-ranging interview about the new video game, her role in FX’s “American Horror Story: Hotel” and. »

Lethal Weapon set to make the jump to the small screen with TV adaptation

3 October 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the reports this week that comic book Watchmen and Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan are set to get the television treatment, you can now add 80’s action favourite Lethal Weapon into the mix, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Fox has reportedly put an order in to Warner Bros. TV from Forever scribe Matt Miller for a new series, which will be based on the hit 1987 film starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover.

The television adaptation will revolve “around the unlikely partnership between a former Navy Seal and Texas cop who moves to Los Angeles after the death of his wife and baby and winds up teamed with an Lapd detective who must avoid stress at any cost because of a heart condition.”

Lethal Weapon became a franchise over subsequent years, with sequels in 1989, 1992 and 1998, and collectively grossed over $936 million worldwide. A fifth film has long been mooted, but has so far never come to fruition. »

Angela Bassett Teases ‘American Horror Story’s’ ‘Darkest Season’ Yet, Kissing Lady Gaga (Video)

29 September 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It’s no secret anthology series “American Horror Story” pushes boundaries with its sexually-charged scenes and brutal killings, especially last season in “Freak Show.” But series star Angela Bassett says Season 5, “American Horror Story: Hotel,” will be even more depraved. “There’s mystery, there’s intrigue, there’s innocence, there’s depravity, there’s things that go on in hotels behind closed doors,” Bassett told TheWrap in a recent sit-down about the FX series and her role as Six in “Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Siege.” Bassett will be kicking butt when the Ubisoft video game hits stores on December 1, »

"Rainbow Six Siege" Won't Have A Campaign

29 September 2015 5:38 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

First came the reveal that "Star Wars Battlefront" offers no single player campaign and little in the way of options for those not wanting to play multiplayer. Then EA revealed "Call of Duty: Black Ops III" will completely forgo a single player mode for its PS3 & 360 versions.

Now, Ubisoft has revealed that the upcoming "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" won't sport a single player campaign mode in any of its versions which hits stores December 1st. Speaking at Egx 2015 to PCGamesN, art director Scott Mitchell says:

"There is no story mode per se. You go through training, where you get to experience different operators and their devices. You can play against enemy AI in co-op through all the maps. You can customise matches, so that's what we're offering on the single-player side of things.

It's a pretty good training ground, and on top or that you're unlocking the same »

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege Beta Gets Off To A Shaky Start

25 September 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The highly-anticipated beta for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege hasn’t gotten off to a particularly good start. Reddit essentially exploded last night as those expecting their beta keys were left disappointed after not receiving it via email. However, the game’s community developer, Chase Straight, attempted to put out the flames by responding to fans and explaining the process and aims of the beta and why you, perhaps, may not have received a key just yet.

As you know, we are granting access to the Closed Beta in waves. We obviously want to get you access as quickly as possible (we want you to play and have fun!), but the focus of our testing right now is on player experience flow and matchmaking. By staggering beta access, we can better manage server stability as the player population ramps up, which is crucial to a great experience when the game launches December 1st. »

Paramount Fires Up Jack Ryan TV Series, Michael Bay To Produce

23 September 2015 8:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Tom Clancy’s venerable CIA agent Jack Ryan is on the cusp of getting his own TV series, after Paramount Pictures pitched the concept of bringing the action hero to the small screen. Deadline has the report, revealing that although the project is yet to find a network to call its own, multiple outlets have expressed an interest in snapping it up and ordering to series.

Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland – best known for their work on Lost and Bates Motel – are spearheading the TV adaptation, now that the studio has quietly retracted its franchise hopes following last year’s Shadow Recruit. As such, it’s nigh on confirmed that the role of Jack Ryan will be recast, and Paramount will be looking to fill the title role left vacant by Chris Pine sooner rather than later.

In fact, through the years, the character of Ryan has also been portrayed by Harrison Ford, »

Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan Gets A TV Series

23 September 2015 5:40 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Tom Clancy's iconic literary creation and cinematic hero Jack Ryan is set to return, albeit this time on the small screen.

"Lost" co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland are teaming with Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount TV for a drama series based on Clancy's novels.

Conceived by Cuse and Roland based on Clancy's novels, the show won't be a direct adaptation but rather a new contemporary take on the character during his days as a CIA analyst following in the wake of his accident and recovery that sidelined him from the Navy.

Roland, Cuse, Bay, Brad Fuller, Andrew Form and Lindsey Springer will executive produce. There has been a lot of interest in the project, with multiple outlets apparently bidding.

Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine have all tackled the role in five different films over the past twenty five years. »

Paramount’s most recent attempt to jumpstart the Jack Ryan franchise with Shadow Recruit (starring Chris Pine as the Tom Clancy-created character) may not have sparked a new film series, but the studio is instead passing the baton to its TV department, hiring Bates Motel man Carlton Cuse and fellow writer/producer Graham Roland to develop a small screen incarnation.Don’t expect Pine to be back for this one – yes, we’re getting yet another Jack Ryan for the series, which is also being produced by Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes.Cuse (who also works on The Strain and upcoming series Colony) is on board to produce and run the show, with Roland (who he met on Lost and has worked with since) will be an executive producer.

Partying at Pax Prime 2015

8 September 2015 3:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Standing in the crowd before the expo halls open, you can feel the anticipation.  It’s contagious, and its hard not to get as equally stoked when waiting to enter Pax.  The wait is certainly worth it.  With so many games to play, it’s hard to be disappointed in Pax Prime 2015.  And yet, as soon as one has toured the entirety of all three expo halls, visited some of the game rooms and poked a head in to every single building, it’s apparent that something is lacking at Pax this year.  Overall a brilliant display of games to come, in the way of indies, board games, and Aaa titles, my impression of Pax was a positive one that satiated my gaming convention thirst, but, like a good beer or glass of wine, left me a little parched and in need of something else or something more.  Here are »

British actress Lydia Wilson ("About Time," "Ripper Street") has joined the cast of the Justin Lin-directed "Star Trek Beyond" for Paramount and Skydance. The film is slated to open on July 8th next year.

Details of her role are being kept under wraps, not a surprise as the same is true of Idris Elba's villain role in the movie which is currently shooting in Canada. She's one of several new cast members this time around with others including Joe Taslim and Sofia Boutella. [Source: Variety]

Ubisoft has announced that "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" has been delayed by a month and a half and will now hit stores December 1st rather than October 13th.

"Watch Dogs" Screw-Up Changed Ubisoft Policy

8 July 2015 5:57 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest controversies in gaming last year was that of Ubisoft's "Watch Dogs," a game that stole the show with its astonishing first footage at E3 in 2012 and then was ridiculed for the major downgrades that it had undergone upon release.

In a new piece for The Guardian, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed that due to all the fuss, the company has had to change its policy on pre-release promotional footage for a game:

"With E3 2015 we said, Ok, let's make sure the games are playable, that they're running on the target machines... When we show something, we ask the team, make sure it's playable, make sure gamers can immediately see exactly what it is. That's what we learned from the Watch Dogs experience – if it can't be played on the target machine, it can be a risk."

Talking about the downgrades and the backlash, Guillemot says »
