Sony Announce Surprise Ratchet And Clank Movie - And It Already Has A Teaser Trailer

Set for a cinema release in 2015 is a big-screen adaptation of the Ratchet and Clank videogame series. Perhaps the most surprising thing about this is there’s a trailer already, on the day the project is being officially announced.

According to Forbes, the film is to be based on a story by TJ Fixman, the senior writer at Insomnia Games and man behind the scripts for the last few Ratchet and Clank games.

Production of the film is being taken care of at Rainmaker Entertainment, who recently gave us the long-delayed, Weinstein-afflicted Escape From Planet Earth. I don’t think they’re really been tested under fair conditions as yet.

The plan is to integrate – though no doubt also polish – assets used in the game animation to make the film more “authentic.” I expect a consistency of voice casting too.

Sony have already adapted Heavenly Sword into a CG movie, and that one is expected to go straight to disc soon – I suppose it doesn’t seem as big-screen appropriated as the Clank movie, likely because it won’t be so “family friendly.”

This particular game-to-film scheme could run and run. There’s certainly enough videogame series with well known characters.
