It did not take too long for the Uncharted film adaptation to get someone to take over the helm. A new report confirms that 10 Cloverfield Lane director Dan Trachtenberg has been brought in to direct the planned big-screen adaptation. More on the report here below.
A movie based on Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been stuck in a special level of development Hell for quite a while now. To give you an idea, Sony put the project on the fast track…back in 2009.
For a long time fans of the games were begging Sony to cast Firefly and Castle star Nathan Fillion in the lead role of Nathan Drake. Because Fillion is without question the best possible actor to play Drake, and fans knew it. Hell, even Fillion himself wanted to play Drake. Unfortunately Sony didn’t agree, and numerous other actors have been attached to the role over the years.
But none of that matters now. Since Sony didn’t give the fans what they wanted, the fans themselves have done it instead. It’s just a short fan film sadly, but it is a live-action Uncharted movie starring Fillion as Drake. You can check it out below, if it hasn’t been pulled for some reason.
Sony has finally found someone to play Nathan Drake in their long-in-development movie based on the Uncharted video game series, and it is not someone you were expecting.
It would appear that the studio is quite high on the star of their latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Tom Holland, as the actor has become the latest actor attached to play Drake. Why they chose such a young actor for the role makes a little more sense when you see the reason, though I’m not very confident that it will make fans of the games feel better about the casting or the direction the movie is now moving in.
A movie based on developer Naughty Dog’s hit Uncharted video game series has been in the works for a long time now. Many have tried, and failed, to bring it to life on the big screen. At this point, most of those interested in seeing the movie roll their eyes when news of another attempt at making the movie arrives.
So, with that said, here’s some new news on the Uncharted movie! It’s being reported that yet another director has been hired in Shawn Levy to try to pull off the adaptation. Levy is best known as the director behind the Night at the Museum movies, and he is an executive producer of the Netflix hit Stranger Things and directed a couple of episodes. He’s also directed titles like Cheaper by the Dozen, The Pink Panther (2006), Date Night, Real Steel, and The Internship.
The Uncharted movie continues to travel a rather bumpy road after numerous writers, directors, and rumored stars have been attached and detached and replaced on the project.
Last July Sony pushed backThe Amazing Spider-Man 3 two years from 2016 to 2018 (before that who reboot was scrapped for the new re-reboot tag team effort with Marvel), and moved the movie based on Naughty Dog’s hit video game series Uncharted into Spidey’s June 2016 slot.
Now comes word that Sony has moved the Uncharted movie back yet again, this time bumping it back an entire year to June 30, 2017.
