Sly Cooper to get own movie in 2016
Sly Cooper, the anthropomorphic raccoon star of several video games, is set to get his own movie. Although not due for release until 2016, the movie already has an official website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and a teaser-trailer:
The film will be made by animation studio Rainmaker Entertainment and indie production company Blockade Entertainment. The writer and director will be Kevin Munroe, who previously wrote and directed the CGI Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie of 2007.
The plot concerns Sly and his childhood best friends (Bentley Turtle and Murray Hippo) as they race to reassemble pieces of an ancient book holding his family secrets before it can fall into the hands of Clockwerk (an evil Russian owl bent on destroying the Cooper family line).
