Sly Cooper Movie Scheduled to Hit Theaters in 2016

Sly Cooper movie is now in production. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles director Kevin Munroe is writing and directing the movie. The companies behind the Ratchet and Clank movie ‘Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker’ are also backing the project.

The official facebook page of the movie shows the following synopsis:

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.

The plot of the movie does look intriguing and it will be fun for all the fans of the gaming franchise. Not many gaming inspired movies have made their mark in the Hollywood. We hope this one is an exception.

Sly Cooper movie is set to feature one of the biggest nemesis Clockwerk. New trailer of the movie can be watched right here and the movie is scheduled to release in 2016.
