In early 2014, Sony released a trailer for a film based on the Sly Cooper video game series. The film was set to be released in 2016 but due to some hiccups in development, that didn't occur. It was to be the second film based on a Sony mascot franchise, with the first being Ratchet & Clank (2016).
In June 2017, it was confirmed that the film has been cancelled because of the other film's Box Office Bomb. However, a television series has been announced in its place which is scheduled to start October 2019.
Has the following tropes
- Stealth Hi/Bye: In the first trailer, Sly pulls one on Bentley whilst the latter is lecturing Murray that orange-flavored chocolates don't count as fruit. Bentley turns around
Bentley: And of course... you're gone.
- Take a Third Option: In the trailer, Sly and Bentley try to get donuts for Murray as a late night snack. They reach the donut shop just as it closes, however. But luckily there's a police station near by. Just as good as any donut shop, right?
- Three-Point Landing: In the trailer, Sly caps off his race across the rooftops to catch up with the truck driven by Bentley by jumping and landing with one arm touching the ground and the other extended to the side with his weapon.
