Ratchet & Clank Movie In The Works

Now this is a game-based movie that might actually work.

As revealed over at the PlayStation Blog, Sony has finally decided to bring their dynamic duo to the big screen. That's right, the "Ratchet & Clank" movie is coming!

With such great humor, colorful and engaging environments, and awesome animation, you have to assume a feature film would offer fantastic fun. Sony has teamed up with Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment, and R&C developer Insomniac will play a significant hands-on role with the production, screenplay, character development and animation. The franchise's writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all the recent series installments, will be penning the script.

Furthermore, as celebration of this announcement, there's a sale on all Ratchet & Clank games on the PSN the week of April 30. This franchise has always been rock solid and even downright excellent at times. The movie won't be ready until 2015 and that may seem like a long ways off, but hey, time flies. It'll be here before you know it.

I've never really heard of Rainmaker nor Reboot. I'll just have to see.

They were known as mainframe before and made the cgi beast wars series. Also, the other studio that is helping with this production are making the Heavenly Sword film.

I hope it's good cause I'm looking forward to this. I'm actually a big fan of family, 3D animated movies, especially Pixar's.

I'm assuming there will be a game tie in. A Ratchet and Clank game on PS4? Would be pretty sweet.

I don't know how excited but I'll definitely give it a watch as long as the original writers are working on it.

Hopefully I'm not the only one who sees how Sony could play this to a huge advantage in pushing the PS4 into family homes. If the movie hits big with the kids, and the game is only available on the PS4, this could help to spur sales in a great way.
They should also go for a Jack and Daxter animated movie. If they time this with a bundled PS4 with the game, they could hit big time!!!
Hope this is what the people at Sony are thinking about :)
