Forbes - Independent game developer Insomniac Games has sold over 26 million copies of its Ratchet & Clank games over the years as an exclusive franchise for Sony’s PlayStation platforms. Now the game maker has partnered with Hollywood to create a 3D feature film based on the bestselling cross-platform game franchise.
“Over the last decade, the Ratchet & Clank franchise has grown from a few small planets into a sprawling universe full of colorful characters and storylines,” said Fixman. “It’s grown as a result of the studio growing, and we’ve learned a lot along the way about what makes these characters tick. With the movie, we have the opportunity to go back to the duo’s origins and use our knowledge to create a deeper, more meaningful story. In a lot of ways we’re reimagining our own work while keeping the franchise DNA intact. This lets us answer all the fans’ questions and theories in a big, cinematic way.”
