Ratchet and Clank won’t be the only Sony characters coming up with their own movie. Sony Computer Entertainment, Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker are at it again by bringing one of Sony’s most memorable characters into a CG animated film. The director of the 2007 film version of TMNT, Kevin Munroe, has written the screenplay and will be directing the movie. Sly Cooper will make its film debut in 2016.

According to a post on its Facebook page:

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.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.

Q: As gamers, are you happy to see another game character making it into the big screen?
