New Writers Hired for "Uncharted" Video Game Movie

Posted: November 23rd, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
New Writers Hired for "Uncharted" Video Game MovieSubmit Comment
Back in June, it was announced that Columbia Pictures would be adapting "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" video game for the big screen, with Kyle Ward (Kane and Lynch, Hitman 2) writing the script.

Now, LatinoReview has learned that Ward is out and writing duo Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly are in. They have previously penned "Sahara" and are the writers on the upcoming "Dead of Night" and "Conan" adaptations.

The story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is ratcheted up several notches when creatures -- actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis -- begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.

Oppenheimer?

Sounds like "Manhattan Project 2: electric boogaloo" to me.

also, Drake sucks because he's indiana jones' personality in bruce campbells body.

it's a good game (except for the wall hiding, its like the wall had a coating of superglue on it) but as a movie, it'd just be picked apart as being an indiana jones rip off without the heart.

Bruce Campbell for Drake.

why bruce campbell he is a bit old they should use Karl urban and they should write about the second game i heard its much better than the 1st idk whether its because of story or gameplay

@ wonderBOY
both stories are awesome but if they do the 2nd first, their gonna change some stuff, for example the female leads and the history and just keep changing stuff so is better do only the first, is more simple then look for the 2nd.

this one is gonna be awesome but im really looking forward for an assassin's creed movie, that story is very interesting and could be epic if done right

Just for those who don't know Uncharted is one of best PS3 and overall video game there is. Now I believe use Nolan North the guy who played him in the game motion capture voice and actually lending his likeness as did the other actors. Use the original cast 'nuff said

nathan fillion should play drake, the role would be fantastic for him. aslong as the writing is up to scratch and they don't stray to far from the game.

Everybody likes a good treasure hunting movie, epecially if the plot is good. Indiana Jones is really the Only good treasure hunting series out there, Im a huge fan of the Indiana Jones Movies but hopefully this can give IJ5 a run for its money haha

Nathan Fillion for Drake.
Powers Boothe for Sully.

Uncharted was a game that clearly wanted to be a film. Hopefully it will be alongside Kane and Lynch in breaking the game-to-movie sh*tness.
