PlayStation Video Game 'Sly Cooper' Getting Feature Film Treatment
While PlayStation games like Gran Turismo, Ratchet & Clank and Watch Dogs already have feature film adaptations in development, another game franchise is coming to the big screen as well. The PlayStation Blog has announced an animated feature film adaptation of Sly Cooper, the heist centric video game following an orphan raccoon who comes from a long line of talented, international thieves. Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are behind the film with TMNT director Kevin Munroe at the helm. And for those eager for a first look, we have some images and a teaser trailer for the new project.
And here are a couple pieces of artwork showing off the new character design:
Sly Cooper is directed by Kevin Munroe (TMNT) and will follow the titular hero as he learns that he comes from a long line of talented, international thieves, and is catapulted into a global adventure. Sly races to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding the Cooper clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk — an evil metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment hope to release the film in 2016, but there's no voice cast announced just yet. To stay on top of the video game adaptation, check out the film's official website and Twitter for updates.

Hmm... dunno... I WANT to like it, but it's too... NON cartoon (if that makes any sense). As a kid, these types of "shows" broke a lot of "rules of nature"... this seems to just follow them too much, so something that "LOOKS" fun, that kinda isn't. Make sense? Dunno. Would have to see a better teaser. Based on this, it's a rental for me.

Ohhh yess this was one of my fav game series back in the day and I liked TMNT so this movie should be good as long as they keep the same voice actor from the video game to voice sly

Where's Verbinski's Bioshock movie dammit. Let him make it R rated and let's go already. It's not like teenagers won't manage to buy tickets anyway.
