Update 1: Teaser Trailer

Update 2: IGN Interview
http://ca.ign.com/articles/2014/01/2...ovie-announced

"We are working very closely with both Sony and Sucker Punch to make sure we are staying true to the franchise," says Brad Foxhoven, the film's producer and CEO of Blockade Entertainment. "Since we were altering the look of the characters and world into pure CG, it was important to keep them in the process. This included the script, the characters, models, and the cast. Of course we were nervous about the results, and breathed a massive sigh of relief when they gave their approval. Now we just have to wait for the fans…"

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.

I hope this means a Sly Cooper game for PS4 in 2015/2016 with similar visuals.

Interesting... I've always thought it was more appropriate to make it a television show, though.

(Also, I'm not really digging Sly's design here.)

Oh god what the fuck have they done to Murray? Sly looks really baby faced too, but not as bad as Murray.

EDIT: Going from that little info, they're trying to mess with his origin story too? Sly always knew that he came from a family of thieves. I guess they're kind of trying to follow the first game but making a few changes to make it so there's a bit more drama. The first game is about Sly's revenge for what Clockwerk did to his parents and stealing his family's heirloom The Thievius Raccoonus.

Blockade seems new but here is a link to what Rainmaker has done.

Lots of Barbie movies recently, but they also worked on ReBoot and Transformers Beast Wars.

So the guy who is directing/writing this also did TMNT (2007). That movie was decent for what it was, so I guess he may do the story justice.

Hopefully everyone reprises their roles.

The trailer at least had some humor in it and the characters are spot on.

At first I was afraid its going to be one of those movies where hero is a cartoon and everyone else is a normal human filmed on camera, no idea why I thought that.

Good thing I was mistaken, yet I still keep my expectation at a very low level. Bracing for inevitable cringefest in advance. One thing for sure, not going to bring my friends to the cinema to watch this. If I had to suffer, let it be alone.

It seems to be an adaptation of the first game, so no Dimitri.

I'm not sure how these will translate into movies. Sly and Ratchet make sense to a degree, Heavenly Sword doesn't. I doubt these light the world on fire financially, and even worse, not sure about the quality.

Ratchet probably has the best chance. I haven't heard of the studio, so doubts are high.

Could be an incredulously well rendered fan fake production. I'll be glad if its true however!

Hopefully this means more Sly games. They're really fun and enjoyable. The characters are awesome too. I wouldn't mind a "mini" Sly Cooper games like Quest for Booty every year for $20.
