With Tuesday's announcement of a CGI "Sly Cooper" movie, past evidence suggesting "Jak & Daxter" and ModNation Racers" are being made into films are starting to become a real possibility.

Back in 2012, a NeoGAF user did some digging online to figure out if the once thought dead "Heavenly Sword" movie was still in the works. He discovered the producer of the film, Brad Foxhoven, was also CEO and Founder of Blockade Entertainment, a company that makes shows and movies based on video games. Afterwards, he discovered the status of the "Heavenly Sword" and other Blockade movies based on PlayStation properties. The PlayStation series under movie development were:

  • "Ratchet & Clank"
  • "Jak & Daxter"
  • "Sly Cooper"
  • "ModNation Racers"

Evidence of these gaming franchises possibly turning into films were erased, but the NeoGAF user was able to find remaining traces online.

Cut to 2014, Blockade Entertainment are currently producing a direct-to-video "Heavenly Sword" movie, a "Ratchet & Clank" movie slated for theaters, and a "Sly Cooper" film. While there's no guarantee Blockade are still producing films based on the "Jak & Daxter" and "ModNation Racers" series, the possibility is stronger than ever, considering their past announcements.
