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.
