Uncharted Movie Currently In “Advanced Development”
Plans to get an Uncharted movie off the ground have seemingly been brewing as long as the franchise itself has been around. Though Nathan Drake’s live-action adventures have still yet to grace the big screen, production appears to be as close as its ever been to happening; having landed a director, lead actor, and unique angle following the younger days of the treasure-hunting hero.
As fans haven’t heard anything about the Uncharted movie in a while, Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra recently provided an update on the anticipated video game adaptation. According to HITC, Vinciquerra confirmed the project is currently in “advanced development” under the PlayStation brand’s newly-announced film and TV division, PlayStation Productions.
It’s unknown what this “advanced” progress could actually signify, but the update at the very least assures fans the project is still underway. Following numerous ill-fated iterations (including Ryan Reynolds as Drake), the Uncharted movie looks to be on track with 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg and Spider-Man star Tom Holland in the lead role. In the meantime, Sony may have another live-action Uncharted to contend with in last year’s impressive fan film starring actor Nathan Fillion.
What do you think? Are you looking forward to what Sony’s Uncharted movie could offer, or should they just go ahead with Nathan Fillion? Could Sony cast both actors as younger and older versions Drake to make everyone happy?
