Ratchet & Clank has been beloved by many since its debut in 2002. A lot of people were skeptical about the film announcement in 2013, but those skeptics will be happy to know that Focus Features is not using cheap voice actors.
Today it was announced that the following voice actors would be included:
- Paul Giamatti as Chairman Drek
- John Goodman as Grimroth
- Bella Thorne as Cora
- Rosario Dawson as Elaris
- Sylvester Stallone as Victor
We also know that James Arnold Taylor will be Ratchet and David Kaye will be Clank. Armin Shimerman will be Nefarious and Jim Ward will be Captain Qwark.
The filmmakers at Rainmaker and Blockade have stated that they are very excited about the voice-over cast and that they have been working very closely with PlayStation to make sure that they maintain the characterization from the games.
