That’s right, the beloved Sly Cooper series is getting a movie! Slated to break into movie theaters in 2016, the movie will feature the return of Sly’s enemy – Clockwerk! And you thought he was defeated, right?
The Sly Cooper movie will be written and directed by Kevin Munroe, who was the man behind the 2007 file TMNT. The movie is planned to be a full CGI movie with the animation being done by Rainmaker and Blockade Entertainment. It’s worth noting that they are also currently working on a Ratchet & Clank movie/project as well!
If you’re curious about the potential plot of the movie, we pulled this directly from the movie’s Facebook page:
[box type=”shadow” align=”aligncenter” ]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.[/box]
