Ratchet & Clank Movie

We’ve been known to take a cynical tone when it comes to video game movies, but this one appears to be actually happening. Insomniac Games has taken to the PlayStation Blog to confirm that the Ratchet & Clank Movie is set to guffaw its way into theatres in 2015. Even more incredibly, it actually looks like it could be pretty good.

The second party Burbank-based studio is working with Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment to bring the popular platformer to the silver screen. The developer is also closely involved with the project, working on the screenplay, character development, and animation. Meanwhile, writer T. J. Fixman – who also worked on the recent games – is penning the script.

We’re pretty impressed with the teaser trailer embedded below. It definitely captures the spirit of the games, which gives us plenty of hope for the full flick. We’re confident that the film will be accompanied by a full PlayStation 4 title, too. You never know, this could actually blow up. The potential’s definitely there.
