The lights are on
Blockade Entertainment, one of the studios working on the Ratchet & Clank movie, revealed that it is also translating the story of Heavenly Sword into film. The film will feature voice work from Anna Torv ("Fringe"), Alfred Molina ("Spider-Man 2"), and Thomas Jane ("Punisher").
Heavenly Sword tells the story of Nariko (Torv) who is on a quest to avenge avenge the destruction of her clan at the hand of King Bohan (Molina). Nariko must use the Heavenly Sword to defeat Bohan's army before it completely drains her life.
The Heavenly Sword game, a PlayStation 3 exclusive developed by Ninja Theory, was released in 2007. The film will hit digital distribution and select theaters in Spring 2014. Check out the first trailer below.
Our Take:I have never played Heavenly Sword, but this movie seems like a fun treat for fans of Ninja Theory's game. If Sony keeps this up, maybe one day we'll get an Infamous movie or the long-delayed Uncharted movie.

a new game would be nice.
I just seen this trailer not too long ago. Excited ^.^
This, along with Nariko being in All Stars... I'm wondering if this means that we may be seeing a Heavenly Sword sequel coming soon...
I've never played this one either. Always wanted to. Hope they make a sequel to this fan favorite.
Come back to us Nariko.
Video game movies. Why not Red Dead Redemption?
Looks kind of like the cinematics from the game
I miss Heavenly sword, it was the first game I played on PS3.
Heavenly Sword should have been a movie in the first place. It had a great story marred by sub-par game play. I will admit that some scenes were fun to play and total bad a**.
Loved that game :)
I liked Heavenly Sword quite a bit. And Flying Fox is one of my favorite villains. I have little hope for the movie, however. Game stories minus the gameplay don't translate well. The two are tied together as an experience.
Great. The movie nobody ask for to the game people want a sequel for.
I really hope that they never make the Uncharted movie.. The game is almost a parody of movies in general, it would defeat the purpose to see Drake on the big screen. So much more value in it being a game.
