UNCHARTED Video Game Adaptation Gets Writers and Drops Director

Sony is moving forward with it’s adaptation of UNCHARTED:DRAKES FORTUNE with two new writers.

Published

on

Over the past 2 years, the adaptation of one of Sony’s most popular and most successful video game series “Uncharted”, has had two directors attached.  Now, we have no directors, but we do have a writer!

IGN is reporting that NATIONAL TREASURE writers Cormac and Marianne Wibberly have been hired to write the script, causing the studio to drop LIMITLESS director Neil Burger.  Originally, THE FIGHTER director David O. Russell was attached to direct with Mark Wahlberg and Robert De Niro starring, but after O’Russell was let go, he took both stars with him.

The “Uncharted” series is a cinematic adventure game that follows Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake, and his partner in crime Victor Sullivan as they search for lost treasures and fight off organizations trying to beat them to the punch. (Think modern day Indiana Jones) The film would be based on the first game in the series, “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune”, where Drake searches for El Dorado, the lost city of gold.

Sony intends on getting the movie made and from the looks of it, intends to bring on a director as soon as possible.  While Mark Wahlberg is no longer attached as far as anyone knows, fan favorites for the lead role have been, Nathan Fillion (ABC’s “Castle”, “Firefly”) and the original voice of Nathan Drake, Nolan North.  Fillion admitted he wanted the role of Nathan Drake, but defended the casting of Mark Wahlberg, telling Chris Hardwick of “The Nerdist” podcast,

“You know I would love to have an Indiana Jones for me, that’s one of my greatest heroes of all time. You can’t fault a man for A. working with someone he’s worked with before, B. Mark Wahlberg, I think that’s a talented guy. I think he does great work, that guy and he a huge international star, which I am not. I am not. I will be,”.

The Videogame series has won countless game of the year awards, and was also awarded for achievements in direction, voice acting, writing, and originality, making “Uncharted” one of the most successful video game franchises in the past 10 years.

The Invisible Man Movie Trailer Looks Terrifying

Published

on

The idea of being invisible has intrigued us for more than 100 years. HG Wells released his book The Invisible Man in 1897 and we’ve been obsessed with the idea ever since. Leave it to Hollywood (and the incredible actress Elisabeth Moss) to find a new way to have us on the edge of our seats. This one has endless opportunities for jump scares (those sudden out of nowhere startling moments that I hate because they’re so damned effective) and the plot set up is pretty compelling. I’ll be there for this one!

The Invisible man hits Theaters February 28 https://www.TheInvisibleManMovie.com
