• Contrary to earlier reports Shane Black’s new Predator film is in fact a sequel, not a reboot. The one-time Hawkins told Collider "why start over, when you've all this rich mythology yet to mine?" Black will assemble a story outline and direct, with The Monster Mash ’s Fred Dekker on scripting duty.

• Ridley Scott’s next film won’t be Prometheus 2 after all. According to writer Simon Kinberg Scott will be directing Matt Damon in The Martian later this year – a film about an astronaut stranded on the red planet.

• Good news anyone with high hopes for Gotham – top telly writer Ben Edlund (he wrote stone cold classic Angel episode “Smile Time”) has joined the Batman prequel’s writing room.

• Dermot Mulroney has joined the cast of Insidious Chapter 3 . The third film in the horror series will focus on an entirely new family, which Mulroney will presumably be a member of. Writer/director Leigh Whannell announced the news on his Twitter feed .

• There’s a new Guardians Of The Galaxy TV spot if you like 60-second snippets of movies. There is an added bonus with this one though – it reveals another track from Peter Quill’s 80s mix-tape.
