Heavenly Sword CG Film Announced, Releasing Spring 2014

A CG-animated film adaptation of Heavenly Sword is set to release spring 2014, Sony announced today.

The film is being developed by Blockade Entertainment, the studio responsible for the Ratchet & Clank film that’s in the works. In fact, according to Blockade CEO Brad Foxhoven, the studio began work on Heavenly Sword before starting Ratchet & Clank. Heavenly Sword began as a “production experiment” that wound up screening so well that they decided to pursue it in full.

Heavenly Sword protagonist Nariko will be voiced by Fringe’s Anna Torv, King Bohan will be voiced by Alfred Molina, and a new character named Loki will be voiced by Thomas Jane. The film will very much follow the game’s narrative, though it will expand upon it in one specific way.

“In the game you never actually get to see the true ‘chosen one,’ because he was never born,” Foxhoven noted. “In the film, though, we introduce him—and give Nariko the task of getting the Heavenly Sword to him. This creates a driving element through the second act of the film, and places even more pressure on Nariko when everything falls apart.”

You can check out the film’s first trailer below.
