Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment revealed today that they will be making a full-length motion picture based on the Sony franchise, Sly Cooper. This news follows last year’s announcement that the studios were working together on another film based on Sony Entertainment characters, Ratchet and Clank film (due to release in 2015), as well as last year’s revitalization of the game franchise in Sly Cooper: Theives in Time.
The film’s official synposis: “Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, along with his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns of his birth family’s secret legacy; that he comes from a long line of talented and international thieves. Endowed with this knowledge, Sly and his friends are catapulted into a global adventure as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding The Cooper Clan’s family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk – an evil Russian metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line. From romantic Parisian backdrops to the lush mountains of China, gritty film noir meets bright, colorful graphic novels in this origin story of the world’s greatest thief-turned-hero.”
Good job Sucker Punch Productions! You included something in Infamous: Second Son that was heartfelt and true to the city of Seattle, the state of Washington and the people everywhere that to this day are still being persecuted because of who they choose to love.
Most people are too afraid to take a side on this issue and include it in any form of mass media, and for that I applaud everyone at Sucker Punch who had a hand in creating this great game.
