Insomniac Games Exec Details Ratchet And Clank Hollywood Movie

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.

Good to see the developer involved in this film, since so many Hollywood adaptations suck.

minimur121191d ago

usually they send it off to a random company to make,and it looses its originality which is why most game films are sh*t.

camel_toad1190d ago

This could actually work given the lightheartedness and animation style of the series compared to the long list of mediocre to downright horrible game-based movies. This could be the very first actual "good" game-to-movie...movie.

Septic1189d ago

Yeah exactly. I have high hopes for this. If this does turn out to be good it would be one hell of a ccccombo breaker.

jakmckratos1190d ago

EXCELLENT! ALways thought they were more like Pixar characters than anything else recently. It'll be great to see one of my favorite franchises get a well deserved movie deal! 2015 just go slightly more epic!

LOL_WUT1190d ago

Maybe they'll have an appearance in Wreck-It Ralph2? ;)

LarVanian1189d ago (Edited 1189d ago )

Would love to see Ratchet, Clank and Sackboy appear in Wreck it Ralph 2! Heck throw Jak and Daxter in there if possible!

Yeah, I'm still waiting to play Full Frontal Assault on Vita. Maybe Insomniac should get involved with that.

I understand they are not working on FFA for Vita, but R&C is associated with Insomniac, and they need to kick someone's ass for taking so long.

Give me FFA on Vita, and then I'll be hyped for the movie.

Good_Guy_Jamal1190d ago

Saw the trailer. Made me smile. Got the R&C charm and humor just right. Why isn't this being done through SONY Pictures? Or is it?

kingmushroom1190d ago

Sony picture animation is not creating it.Why?

The answer was:

The movie business is crazy at times. We’re super stoked to be partnering with Rainmaker though and getting to be super hands-on

Ultr1190d ago

I'm pretty sure it will be

r211190d ago

Yeah, weird that Sony Pictures isnt involved. They've got an already talented animation studio too but based on the trailers, the 3rd party studio has done a good job so far. Looks as good if not better than the PS3 games.

Sugreev20011190d ago

One of the funniest teasers I've seen in ages. I can't believe we might actually see a good,if not great video game adaptation in the near future. Insomniac being involved is fantastic news. I hope if this does well,we'll see a whole new level of interest in adapting video game franchises to the big screen.

The Great Melon1190d ago

Hopefully it well garner interest in translating games to movies the correct way -- by working with the original creators closely.
