You can add another title to the growing list of video game adaptations in the works. Variety is reporting that the producer of the animated movie "Escape from Planet Earth" is developing an animated "Ratchet & Clank" film based on the platformer from Insomniac Games for release in early 2015.
While news of yet another video game movie is not earth-shattering, the "Ratchet & Clank" film is falling more in-line with what we've seen from the recent wave of film adaptations. As Variety reported, TJ Fixman is writing the script for "Ratchet & Clank," a fan-pleasing choice considering that he's a senior writer at Insomniac. What made the series so popular in the first place was, obviously, the gameplay, but also the sense of humor that both characters had.
