So let’s say that you’ve played Cut the Rope. You’re probably aware of the game’s little green monster Om-Nom, yes? Well, now that tiny beast is getting his own movie focused on his origins. Yes, seriously.
ZeptoLab and Blockade Entertainment have today announced that they’ll be making a film based on the Cut the Rope character, tentatively titled Om Nom: The Movie, that’ll be made in ZeptoLab’s 3D cartoon style. The summary is as follows:
“Om Nom tells the story of 13-year old Evan, a boy whose impulsiveness leads him to open a secret package containing a living scientific experiment – with mischievous intentions! Known only as Om Nom, this adorable creature has an insatiable appetite for everything sugary. Now free to roam, Om Nom begins to wreak havoc upon this formerly quiet town, and Evan, with his little sister Jordan in tow, must follow him on an epic adventure while avoiding a host of government agents, shady characters and other unique creatures – all of whom are looking to capture Om Nom for themselves.
Along the way, Evan and Om Nom will discover the importance of trust and patience, and how life’s accidents can sometimes lead to incredible discoveries and unforgettable moments.”
If the name Blockade Entertainment sounds familiar to you, that’s because this is the third video game film they’re working on. Also on their plate is Ratchet and Clank, due out April 29 of next year, and Sly Cooper, due out sometime next year as well. Like those two, Om Nom will arrive in 2016.
This is…really weird, right?
