Ratchet & Clank makes perfect sense as a family friendly, action-packed movie, so hopefully the end result is stellar. Read on for the announcement from the PlayStation Blog.

One of the biggest questions we?ve gotten in the last few years is ?When are you going to make a Ratchet & Clank movie?? The truth is, we?ve wanted to do a movie for a long time! Ratchet & Clank?s action, humor and galaxy-spanning adventures have really been the basis for a fantastic game series, and we think it?d translate perfectly to the big screen.

We?ve been looking for the right partner to help us bring a Ratchet & Clank movie to life, and we?re thrilled to announce that Blockade Entertainment and Rainmaker Entertainment are currently in production on Ratchet & Clank?s first cinematic adventure. Insomniac is honored to play a hands-on role with the film?s production, screenplay, character development, and animation consulting. Furthermore, our own Ratchet & Clank writer, T.J. Fixman, who has written all of the recent Ratchet & Clank games, is writing the script for the film as well.

But don?t take my word for it ? check out our teaser above.

In additional celebration of the film?s announcement and to tide you over until the premiere, we?ll be offering a sale on all Ratchet & Clank games on PSN the week of April 30 ? more details to come! Speaking of more details to come, we know you?re still patiently waiting for Ratchet & Clank: Full Frontal Assault and Ratchet: Deadlocked. While we don?t have any news to share today, stay tuned!

There will be much to come on the Ratchet & Clank movie as we get farther into production and closer to its release. Thanks for all your support of the franchise over the last 10 years, without you, there wouldn?t be a movie!
