I'm going to admit straight away that I never played Sly Cooper on the PS2 and my knowledge quite literally begins and ends with only just recognising him from some random magazine cover or game case on a shelf in a shop at some point in my past...
Regardless of my lack of knowledge it seems that the production team behind the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie (Rainmaker and Blockade Entertainment) are looking to also bring Sly to our movie screens in 2016 and have released the synopsis and teaser below.
"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."
