Alex De Rakoff - Alex de Rakoff joins Transformers Universe

'Dead Man Running' director Alex de Rakoff is scripting 'Transformers Universe'.

The scriptwriter and director - who has previously been behind Orlando Bloom's 'The Calcium Kid' and UK gangster movie 'Dead Man Running', staring 50 Cent - has joined as Creative Director of the new computer game.

Speaking of his appointment, de Rakoff said: ''Having worked for many years as a writer and director of feature films, music videos and console games I'm really inspired to apply my experience to the media and narratives of large-scale online games.

''For me, this space is now the cutting edge of entertainment and there is no better studio to get behind than [game developers] Jagex.

''I am delighted to join their fantastic creative team with our collective intention of developing the best online games on the block.''

In addition to 'Transformers Universe', de Rakoff will work on another game, 'Runescape 3', the next instalment in one of the most popular Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG).

Alex Horton, Chief Creative Officer of Jagex, said: ''We're doing something special with 'Transformers Universe', a game Alex is already a key part of. As we go forward expect to see his influence on all of the Jagex media.

''Having pedigree talent move in-house after a period of collaboration is a great endorsement of what we're doing and where we're going.''
