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.
