Sly Cooper is a cancelled film based on the video game of the same name. It was scheduled for a release in 2016.

Brad Foxhoven and David Wohl were set to be producers. Harley Zhao and David Sheldon were set to be executives.


The plot would have followed the plot of the original 2002 PlayStation 2 game, specifically Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus.

Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. The 2016 Ratchet & Clank movie was a huge box office disappointment.
    • Also, there was meant to be a sequel for the R&C movie, but if that were to release along with the Sly Cooper movie, then it would have made things worse for the development crew.
  2. Sucker Punch Productions, the ones who made the Sly Cooper series, stated that they would not make any future Sly Cooper games with Sanzaru Games, alongside any future Infamous games.
  3. After the release of the fourth game, Thieves in Time, many fans have been desperate for a fifth Sly Cooper game.
  4. Rainmaker left the production of the film itself in pure pitch darkness, leading to the film's soon-to-be-caused cancellation.
  5. The trailer received mixed-to-negative reception from fans of the franchise alike.


  • The Sly Cooper movie was completely cancelled and will most likely never see the light of day.
    • However, despite the film's sudden cancellation, the trailer is still up.
      • On a side note, the trailer got remade, with the only different being that "Breaking into theaters 2016" was replaced with "The Movie".
  • A Sly Cooper TV Show was announced and was set for an October 2019 release on Netflix before the movie released, but nothing has been shown as of April 2024. It is possible the TV show had been cancelled as well.
  • Sly Cooper 5 has been expected to release anytime sooner.
  • Sony decided to work on different projects, such as Death Stranding, Gravity Rush, and ironically, the live-action film adaptation of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda.
