In a surprise move yesterday, Sony quietly announced the production of an animated 3D film based on their hugely popular Ratchet and Clank franchise of videogames. Variety says the project is being handled by Rainmaker Entertainment (best known for Escape From Planet Earth) in partnership with Blockade Entertainment, and a 2015 release is being targeted. Check out the announcement trailer below.
Fans of the game will immediately recognize the voices of James A. Taylor, David Kaye and Jim Ward, who reprise their roles from the gaming franchise. The film will also be scripted by TJ Fixman, lead writer at Insomniac Games, the creators of the Ratchet and Clank series.
