We’ve seen a lot of very bad Hollywood adaptations of our favorite video games over the years, dating all the way back to Disney’s Super Mario Bros. and Capcom’s own Street Fighter: The Movie. But while Hollywood has traditionally gone the live action route, CGI has mostly been left to original IP – aside from the Resident Evil straight-to-video flicks from Sony.
But Insomniac Games is taking its computer-generated characters, Ratchet & Clank, and placing them on the big screen in a 3D feature film from Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment. Using brand new technology, Hollywood producers are collaborating with Insomniac Games – even bringing over the original voice cast for the feature film – to explore the origins of Ratchet and Clank’s friendship.
Ryan Schneider, brand development director at Insomniac Games, talks about what’s in store for gamers with this big budget 3D flick -- coming to a theater near you in 2015 -- in this exclusive interview.
