Uncharted Movie Script Officially Completed – “Monstrously Cool”
Joe Carnahan has officially given the green light for hype (or trepidation, your call) regarding the upcoming film adaptation of the ever popular Uncharted series. The draft, he says, is officially done for the Uncharted movie and is “monstrously cool”.
“Done and dusted,” he says in the Instagram post shown above. “If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I want to read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.” All right, Carnahan – easy, there. That excitement is contagious and our fragile gamer hearts can only take so much after so many disappointments of game translations onto the silver screen.
We’ve been talking about an Uncharted movie for over 8 years now since its initial announcement broke in 2009. The project has changed hands so many times but now – now it seems like the journey can official begin its long process as Carnahan teams up with Stranger Things Director Shawn Levy to tackle this feat.
The search for a Nathan Drake continues while the team looks for the perfect actors for the role. Many have voiced (including a lot of us here at DFTG) that Nathan Fillion would be an excellent contender. Others have said they wanted his voice to take on a more front runner role with Nolan North. One thing we do know is that Mark Wahlberg has officially detached his name from the list of potentials, you can read more about that here. The list of candidates is endless and fans have amazing reasons for their picks, but it is all still speculation at this point.
As of right now, the film’s future is unknown. Considering the draft was just now completed, it is not surprising that we do not have a release date yet but the fact that it has finally been accomplished is a good sign. Video games being turned into movies is nothing new, though at times has definitely been tragic. That being said, the Assassin’s Creed film and the adaptation of Warcraft both did reasonably well considering, so all hope is not lost. Cross your fingers, everybody!
