Uncharted Film on the Way?

Uncharted Film on the Way?

The Los Angeles Times has reported that Sony is looking to move forwards on a feature film adaptation of the PS3 exclusive video game series Uncharted. Sony are rumoured to have several names on the list of possible directors for such a film including David O. Russel who directed ‘Three Kings’, ‘I Heart Huckabees’ as well as the yet to be released films ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ as well as ‘The Fighter’.

Despite several adaptations of video games that have produced less than desirable results, I would like to see an Uncharted film get the green light. This franchise would have to be one of the most fertile video game franchises available for a film adaptation with its rich characters and adventure story settings. Nathan Fillion would be the perfect casting choice for Nathan Drake, with Bruce Campbell as Victor Sullivan and possibly Sarah Michelle Gellar as Elena Fisher.

Without any official announcements on cast and crew, an Uncharted film is unlikely to see a release for some time. What are your thoughts? Do you want to see another video game franchise adapted to the silver screen? Who would you like to see in the role of Nathan Drake? Let us know in the comments section below.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
