News has dropped today via The Hollywood Reporter, that some big names will be joining the voice cast for the upcoming Ratchet & Clank movie. Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Sylvester Stallone and Rosario Dawson will join the cast as supporting characters.
What might be a little more exciting for fans is the confirmation that the original voices of the main characters will reprise their roles for the film. This includes James Arnold Taylor as Ratchet; David Kaye as Clank; Armin Shimerman as Nefarious; and Jim Ward as Captain Qwark.
Ratchet and Clank tells the story of two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind – a foolhardy “lombax” who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets, they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called The Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way they’ll learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one’s own identity.
While no theatrical release date has been set, the film is slated to come out in 2015.
