Posted: 15 Nov 2012 11:35 AM PST


The best actor around, Tom Hardy has gone for a hero this time. He has just signed up to play Sam Fisher, in the upcoming film of video game franchise Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.

Tom, who is currently filming anti-hero, Mad Max: Fury Road, and who recently played Batman villain, Bane, is now going for an all out action hero with the ex-CIA, ex-Navy SEAL Fisher who kicks ass at the behest of the National Security Agency under the "Fifth Freedom Act" to do whatever it takes to protect the America.

It's being scripted by Eric Warren Singer who has written Tom Tykwer directed, Clive Owen starring, The International. He has also just written "American Bullshit,"(working title) for David O. Russell with Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner set to star. It's a tale about con artists, mobsters, politicians and the FBI all getting up to no good.

Ubisoft, the makers of the Splinter Cell game has had preliminary talks with Paramount and Warner Bros, but hasn't finalised a studio yet.

Don't expect the finished result before 2014 though, as Tom may be off up a mountain as George Mallory in Doug Liman's, Everest.

New Augmented Reality Game From Google Niantic Labs

Posted: 15 Nov 2012 10:24 AM PST


Google Niantic Labs has released an invite-only beta of 'Ingress' the new augmented reality game app that lets you play at international man/woman of mystery.

Here's your mission should you get an invite: A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. (Rupert Murdoch?) We must control it or it will control us.

So fire up your Android smartphone (not optimized for tablets) and the Ingress app to discover and tap sources of this mysterious energy. Pick a side, the "Resistance" or the "Enlightened." Acquire objects, deploy tech to capture territory, and all the other shenanigans.


The struggle is being played out globally. You can keep track of players around the world, plan your next steps, and communicate with others using an Intelligence map. And remember, the struggle to save the planet spans the entire world. Groups of people acting together can be more effective than acting alone.

No word yet on a general release.
