Insomniac brand development director Ryan Schneider talks about the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie in this GameSkinny interview. I was totally jazzed by the article, but I have a lot of biases here — I’m a mark for Insomniac, I’m quite fond of Ryan, and I’ve been friends with the interviewer for years. Naturally, I want to see if you guys and dolls are excited about a Ratchet & Clank movie as I am. Before we get to that, here’s a clip from the interview:
A side benefit of working near Hollywood is developing relationships with many of the nearby production companies and agencies. Through these relationships, we’ve learned a lot about how films get made — or more accurately, remain in developmental purgatory forever. As a result, we can approach development meetings with a bit more knowledge and perspective. If nothing else, we’ve learned to ask the right questions over the years when considering deals. It’s finally paying off as Ratchet & Clank earns its long-deserved place in the cinematic spotlight.
Check out the full interview when you have a chance. It’s a good read. When you’re done with that, kindly share your thoughts, hopes, and dreams on the Ratchet & Clank movie in the comments section.
