Sly Cooper, a new animated movie based on Sony Computer Entertainment's video game series, will be released in cinemas in 2016, Rainmaker and Blockade have announced.

The movie's description states: "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, colourful graphic novels in this origin story of the world's greatest thief-turned-hero."

Kevin Munroe, who wrote and directed 2007's TMNT, is helming the film.

Yikes not a fan of that art style. The original Sly Cooper games were made to look like old school cartoons and comic books. I've no idea why they've gone with this ultra-detailed semi-realistic cgi look. The humour and tone of the games seems to have got through from the trailer but god why does it have to look like that?

First Ratchet & Clank, now Sly Cooper. This is great, now all we need is for Rainmaker and Blockade to make a Jak & Daxter film.

On topic. I take it the film is on track and everything, only I haven't heard anything about it apart from that trailer

Love this news!!
I was a big fan of the first three games when I was growing up, although was disappointed by the art style in the 4th game.

By the looks of it, it will basically be a film of the first game (which I am well up for). Will be interesting to see how they turn the different levels into a film.

Roll on 2016.

I'm afraid that after Guardians of the Galaxy drops the year before, I'll be done with human-sized talking racoons for a bit.

I think they need to make Murray look more like Murray from the game. He looks like a mafia bodyguard with muscles atm.

AWESOME NEWS!

I enjoyed the 2007 TMNT film. It wasn't perfect but I felt it combined the classic TV show with a dark edge well.

Sly Cooper is a great game that not many people seem to care about. The series have produced some of my favourite platformers and the stealth stuff and humour was always top notch.

High hopes for this to be a good video game adaptation. Hope they keep the original voice cast for the main guys.
