I HAVE BEEN ASKING FOR THIS FOR YEARS AND ITS HAPPENING.

also this goes...em not here. One of the general topics.

this may in gamers eyes put ratchet where he belongs. The front of Sony. It also in my view guarantees his spot as Sony's Mario forever more.

From Forbes: "As 2015 rolls around, the Hollywood producers will work closely with
Insomniac Games and Sony to cross-market the theatrical release to
gamers." So that means Insomniac's making a 2015 R&C game, most likely. I'd like to hope it ties in well to the story, and isn't just a cash-in game. Knowing IG, it'll probably be a sequel to the movie or something. I'm very intrigued. Perhaps that'll be the first actually good video game movie (though the AC one might come out first). If R&C is the first, I'm in no way gonna complain!

I hardly count Wreck-It Ralph as a real video game movie, not to down its greatness in its own right. I'm talking in the vein of all of the terrible Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, and Prince of Persia movies they've done, that have been crapped out just for money. Not to mention the Super Mario Bros. movie.

According to the press release, "Ratchet and Clank tells the story of two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind – a foolhardy 'lombax' who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way they’ll learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity. "

IGN: How did this project come about?

Brad Foxhoven: The video game industry has some pretty spectacular franchises, filled with compelling characters and engaging story lines. When we looked at Ratchet and Clank, we recognized a franchise that was already very cinematic and with a distinct voice that set it apart from other game franchises. Most of the current crop of animated films are based on new concepts that require the marketing teams to invest a significant amount just to make the audience aware of the basic aspects of the film: who the characters are, what makes this world unique, etc.. With Ratchet and Clank, we already had a massive fan base, and partners in SCEA and Insomniac that would help promote the film.

IGN: What about Ratchet and Clank makes it perfect as an animated theatrical release?

Michael Hefferon: You have an incredible world of characters, locations and situations, that together set the stage for our action adventure comedy that will appeal to family audience. This is already evident in the success of Ratchet and Clank as a game franchise. The strong appeal of the main characters, make them identifiable and likeable that appeal to adults and kids a alike. Although the storyline for Ratchet and Clank is original to the movie, the game franchise provides the film an immediate market awareness – this inherent awareness will be a strong driver for the films success.

IGN: How involved is SCEA and Insomniac with this film?

Foxhoven: They are very involved, which is a big plus for us. We have tremendous respect for what they have accomplished with this game, and their guidance on how to transition this to a feature film. For example, TJ Fixman, who writes for the game, is also our screenwriter. TJ, and other members of the Insomniac team, also help to guide the film's creative vision, consult on animation and design, and even help on our marketing efforts. In many ways, this is more of a collaboration with them than us just running off to make a film.

IGN: Rumor has it that this project is coming in at a much smaller budget than other theatrical releases? How did you do it?

Hefferon: Rainmaker has tremendous experience in producing long form content and has built a feature film pipeline that allows the studio to leverage our technology and strong production methodology to give our artist the ability to achieve high quality results at a much lower cost. A strong driver for us on the Ratchet and Clank film, is the wide range of game assets available to us to base our designs in creating the world. The look of picture has already been established, allowing us to take the art direction for the game and adapt it for a cinematic format.

IGN: Does this use the in-game models or was it built from scratch?

Hefferon: Although the in-game models provide us with reference, all the assets, rigs, models and elements necessary to make the film will be entirely created from scratch. We will use the in-game models for the pre-visualization (Previz) phase, allowing us to block out the storyboard scenes with CGI characters. This allows us to shorten the typical development/preproduction phase and move quicker into production.

IGN: Do you have any ideas for who other voice talent – any "celebrity" talent?

Hefferon: The first thing we're doing right, is working with the talented voice talent from the game for our three main characters to ensure the film is true to the game characters. With our script locked and film now officially announced, we are in discussion with potential celebrity talent – many of whom are big fans of the game.

IGN: What part of the Ratchet and Clank lore will the movie cover? Will any of the story from the games make it into the film?

Foxhoven: The film really covers their "origin" story so to speak. TJ did a great job of inserting elements that would appeal to both existing fans while attracting a new audience that may not be familiar with the game franchise.

IGN: Will the film tie in with a next gen game release?

Foxhoven: The film is a stand alone story, but we will be looking at various ways to coordinate marketing efforts with both Sony Playstation and Insomniac.

IGN: What are some of the planets they might visit in their journeys?

Foxhoven: We want to keep the storyline under wraps for the moment, but fans should expect some familiar locations.

IGN: Which weapons from Ratchet’s famous and expansive arsenal will make it into the movie?

Foxhoven: One of the many cool aspects of this franchise, in addition to the great characters, is the endless supply of crazy weapons and gadgets that these characters use--and rest assured this film is loaded with them.

I'm surprised this wasn't leaked many months prior to its actual announcement.
Joking aside, I was pleasantly surprised. R&C isn't my most particularly favorite franchise but it's nice to see another adaptation, and it already looks decent to me.

This was in Sony's mind since I wanna say 2009, so yeah, it's definitely not a "new" prospect, as toonz noted.

My god, YES. JUST YES. I swear, since I've gotten into the franchise during the All-Stars hype, I always thought that this is the one video game franchise that'd be absolutely PERFECT for a movie! And it's actually happening with a teaser trailer even! Seriously, this is just...wow. I don't Wreck-It Ralph as a good video game movie despite being my favorite animated film of all time due to being about video game franchises and characters rather than actually being a full-fledged movie adaptation. This might be the one movie that can turn the perception of video game movies around! Just yes!

Okay, okay... *breathes slowly* Wow, I've been a fan of the series for about a year and I've overreacted ten times harder than even the veteran fans of this series on the forum. XD Yeah, I have high hopes for this, honestly. I mean, of course it still has a chance to flop but I can honestly trust in Insomniac that that they'll oversee this movie's production with the high approval standards and judgement. It's just such a surprise because literally a few days ago I was talking to a friend about how awesome it would be if there was an R&C movie, although I mentioned that I'd like it to be developed by Pixar lol.

Long comment aside, I'm hyped lol. Although I wouldn't get my hopes up for a J&D movie possibility unless the series at least gets revived on the PS4. Sly Cooper is possible though and it would certainly fit in on the big screen, or even better, a TV series. But I'm getting a bit ahead of myself again lol.

Again this is the beginning of something. heavenly sword DVD movie aswell.

Sony can pull from a lot of stuff. Comics are in right now. So infamous. After moody teens and general sci fi Greek myths are in so god of war. Sly would be a great movie with the sneaking building tension until a fight with the fiendish 5 member. Twisted metal could work as an action film as could uncharted. Jak...I dunno The plot may be a bit much for your casual movie goer. But importantly the potentialis there. Seems Sony movies don't wanna rely on Spider-Man. Any way.

This will work. In game voices scripted by insomniac, animated so acting won't fuck it up. It'll be badass. Plus...GUNS!

inFamous is begging to be turned into a movie! D=

I've always wanted that too happen and I already know to people who could play good old Cole Macgrath.

That random actor from the All-Stars trailers or Justin Timberlake...Actually I'd prefer Justin lol

I can honestly see God of War failing as hard as the Super Mario movie, sadly. But I'll refrain from judgement until a proper trailer's shown. I can see Infamous being good though as long as it isn't a cheesy animated movie and such. Uncharted's already confirmed as an upcoming movie though. And also, I kind of would rather want to see a Sly movie based on Band of Thieves, if only to show off the whole team with their memorable teamwork, funny interactions, and just being a family. Doing the first game would be alright, but, I dunno, it's just a preference. ANd I only see Jak reallyw orking if it's an original story.

And just remember lpool, you must always be cautious. I mean, there have been plenty of movies that have failed to met up with expectations due to being too high. And I don't count guns making a movie awesome, especially after the Expendables lol.

And an Infamous movie's already confirmed Slayer. As well as Uncharted, God of War, and Assassin's Creed even though that's not Sony lol. And I think there's also a Metal Gear movie as well.

Yup metal gear. Twisted too. But all those Sony projects are vapourfilm. Gow was outright cancelled I think. Metal gear is chugging on and ac has micheak fassbender...#awesomeirishactors.

Nah he can do VO because he looks nothing like Cole Macgrath where as Justin Timberlake looks exactly like(or pretty damn close) to Cole in the movie "In Time". He can totally pull Cole Macgrath off!

I can honestly see God Of War being a success and you can't really compare GOW too Super Mario in terms of movies/story telling. GOW stands one hell of a chance in my eyes. inFamous would be amazing and it would have to be live action! D= I knew about UnCharted being confirmed and I could see a Sly movie working just not as well as you can.

Wait... When the fuck did the inFamous and God of War movies get confirmed? I heard of UnCharted, Assassin's Creed and Metal Gear but not the other two! 0.0

My only concern is the conflicting reports about the plot. Some reports from Insomniac say that it's a self-contained story, while one of Sony's press releases or something said that it's an amalgamation of the first game's plot with elements of GC and UYA. I'm not too thrilled by the idea of the latter, personally, because I'd rather see an entirely unique story, rather than a rebooted origin story. I'm not a fan of retcons.

Re: The Ratchet and Clank movie

GoW got cancelled? Thank god lol. no offense to any GoW fans, I just hardly see that working on the big screen unless Sony literally pours their entire soul into it, which I doubt they'll even give a fraction of to R&C no matter how good it'll be lol. But I didn't know that Twisted got confirmed.

I'm just a bit worried though that Sony's getting ahead of themselves by green-lighting all of these movies getting made, even if they are Sony. Because for all we know, we could either get in gaming wonderland or have to endure crapfest after crapfest barring R&C's actual potential.

And Slayer... you thought I was comparing GoW to Mario? XD I'm just saying that it could end up being almost as memorable of a flop, that's it lol. it's not the story telling that I'm worried about but how the CGI, acting cosplay, etc. will be handled, which i can sadly see awkwardly failing 6-7/10 times in my mind. I have actually played the games a bit before and watched my cousin play through the first two games and Chains of Olympus, so it's not like I'm blowing shit out of my ass from a casual perspective. No offense Slayer. And if you play the Sly games, they can DEFINITELY work as an animated movie.

And I'm with DP as I'm also confused. It'd be really awkward to see R&C1 with modern Ratchet's pilot suit and voice, not to mention seeing Drek again and stuff. Really, just keep it self-contained with a quick up to speed monologue in the beginning by Qwark.
