Sly Cooper Getting A Feature Length Adaptation
It seems like Sony is finally tapping into some of their more iconic videogame franchises for film adaptations, with Sly Cooper being the first announced IP to get the feature length treatment. Penned by Kevin Munroe, best known for his work on 2007's TMNT, I doubt this franchise will have a hard time jumping onto the big screen with it's wide cast of characters. While the 'teaser' above is most probably fluff subject to some major changes, the final feature is set to premiere sometime in 2016 and will probably arrive after a next gen installment/reboot of the franchise.
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. In the film, 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.”
