ratchet and clank getting an animated movie

#1OtakuGameraPosted 4/23/2013 6:26:15 AM
One of the biggest questions we’ve gotten in the last few years is “When are you going to make a Ratchet & Clank movie?” The truth is, we’ve wanted to do a movie for a long time! Ratchet & Clank’s action, humor and galaxy-spanning adventures have really been the basis for a fantastic game series, and we think it’d translate perfectly to the big screen.

We’ve been looking for the right partner to help us bring a Ratchet & Clank movie to life, and we’re thrilled to announce that Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are currently in production on Ratchet & Clank’s first cinematic adventure. Insomniac is honored to play a hands-on role with the film’s production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting. Furthermore, our own Ratchet & Clank writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all of the recent Ratchet & Clank games, is writing the script for the film as well.

But don’t take my word for it — check out our teaser above.

In additional celebration of the film’s announcement and to tide you over until the premiere, we’ll be offering a sale on all Ratchet & Clank games on PSN the week of April 30 – more details to come! Speaking of more details to come, we know you’re still patiently waiting for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and Ratchet: Deadlocked. While we don’t have any news to share today, stay tuned!

There will be much to come on the Ratchet & Clank movie as we get farther into production and closer to its release. Thanks for all your support of the franchise over the last 10 years, without you, there wouldn’t be a movie!

ratchet is still a popular franchise, all 4 one sold more than a million despite tepid reviews, and i've always felt it is better as an animated series anyway, something like buzz lightyear

That's pretty nifty. Unfortunately there's a stigma associated with basically every video game movie, many people think they'll automatically stink(Thank you Super Mario Brothers movie!)

I really like the Resident Evil film series. The first Mortal Kombat film was good, the second was an abomination.

I'm looking forward to this. Wreck-It Ralph proved a video game movie can be fantastic. :-)

Rainmaker used to be known as Mainframe Entertainment. They made Reboot, Beast Wars, and Beast Machines.

I am confident that Insomniac's baby is in good hands.

Funny thing? There are movies based on video games that are actually worse than SMB. Like Double Dragon, Street Fighter, and even the Tekken live action movie was on last night on TV. And they are awful.

I'm guessing Sony is fishing for good marketing at this point.

How is it that out of all the franchises that Sonys talked about making into movies (Uncharted, Infamous, God of War) that this is the first time I hear of Rachet and Clank being made into a movie and already has a trailer and its not due out till 2015 as well.

Come on Sony I wanna see some Cole McGrath on the big screen.
