Since 2008 Sony Pictures has been working on adapting the Uncharted video games into a feature film. There has been discussion on who will play the games hero, Nathan Drake, but it has been unknown at what stages the movies progress has been. But now Joe Carnahan, the writer of The Grey and director of the next Bad Boys movie, has wrote on his Instagram he has completed the script for Uncharted.
“Done and Dusted, Now the REAL work begins. If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I wanna read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.”
At one point Sony removed the release date back in September, but a month later Shawn Levy (Real Steel) was hired to direct and the movie has a new filming date set for early 2017.
