Sly Cooper CG Animated Film Coming 2016
If you had a PlayStation 2 then it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that you’ve heard of the Sly Cooper franchise which told the tale of the eponymous Raccoon master thief as he recovered his family’s tome of knowledge known as the Thievius Raccoonus (at least in the first game). Well, Sony dropped a trailer and a date for us to nibble on as we hunker down for the two-year wait for it to arrive.
The movie’s official synopsis from producer Brad Foxhoven states:
Sly Cooper is a kinetic and comedic heist film that tells the story of Sly Cooper, an orphaned raccoon thief, and the adventures of his childhood friends and partners in crime, Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo. In the film, Sly learns that he comes from a long line of talented, international thieves, and is catapulted into a global adventure. Sly races 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 metallic owl bent on ending the Cooper family line.
The movie is being directed by Kevin Munroe and is made by Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment, set to be in theaters sometime in 2016.
