There’s another video game movie adaptation coming. Luckily, it’s not another slapped-together live-action action movie that’s only resemblance to a game is character names and some professional cosplay.
Sony and Insomniac Games, the developers of the Ratchet & Clank and Resistance games (and Spyro), have announced that a Ratchet & Clank movie is currently in the works, to be released sometime in 2015. The movie now has a website, Facebook page, and Twitter account where fans can follow the movie’s development.
Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are working on the animated film, though Insomniac is involved in a consulting role for the characters, screenplay, and animation. Rainmaker is known for producing many Barbie straight-to-DVD titles, but was also the company behind ReBoot, Beast Wars: Transformers, and this year’s Escape From Planet Earth.
Check out the teser trailer for the movie below.
Oh, and to celebrate the announcement, Sony is putting all Ratchet & Clank games on PSN on sale next week.
