Sony already approaching directors for Uncharted movie | PS3Blog.net

Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is definitely off to Hollywood! Sony’s hell-bent on bringing Nathan Drake’s action-packed treasure-hunting adventure to the big screen that they’ve already met with director David O. Russell to get things going.

According to The Los Angeles Times, Sony approached the director regarding his potential work for the movie, but that there are in fact several other directors that the company is considering for the job. The report describes it as “the meeting stage, and not close to the deal making one.”

Other tidbits about the Uncharted movie would be that the script would be penned by Thomas Dean Donelly and Joushua Oppenheimer (“Sahara”, the new “Conan the Barbarian”), and that they’re setting their eyes on a summer 2011 release.

David O. Russell’s filmography includes Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees, Flirting with Disaster, Spanking the Monkey, and the upcoming The Fighter, starring Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.

Honestly, I could see this doing well as a movie. It’s got the storyline nailed down and it isn’t something stupidly unrealistic. As long as they find decent actors this could be a fantastic movie.

    They should have been looking for directors ever since the first one was released. At this pace, they movie won’t be out until at least october-november 2011 to be realistic. Might even slip into 2012 if someone drops out.

  • I suspect it will be in 3D. 😀

  • It can’t be any worse than “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.” Right?

  • bad company

    get JAMES CAMERON you know it will be good

  • EdEN

    Tomb Raider wasn’t bad really. Both movies are a good way to unwind during the afternoon with some popcorn and a beer or two.

    If done right this game to movie could be a classic. Me personally i cant wait for the prince of persia movie that way movie directors can see what to do and what not to do.

    Ha if i had to pick a actress megan fox hands down for this movie.

  • Royalty32

    Plz megan fox is trash. TERRIBLE actress. She just eye candy.

  • Ace

    ^Your point ? Shes hot.

    Uncharted games relied on top-notch voice acting and motion capture (which are essential attributes to acting, really). Megan Fox wouldn’t even come close to working. Personally, I think the voice actors themselves have the looks and capabilities to portray their characters on the big screen.

    Now, since the movie is supposedly going to be based off of the first game, Nolan North and Emily Rose could easily play their characters. Given a good makeup job, Richard McGonagle could still play Sully, etc. That way, the movie won’t lose the flavor the games have because they use the actual people who portrayed their characters in the game.

    I second that idea.

    ohhh i see how it is i dig a hole and you guys stuff me in it. All i was saying is what kind of guy wouldn’t want to see a movie about video games and megan fox and yes i know her acting is really bad. But Ticket sales would go through the roof.

  • Royalty32

    No Ace they wouldnt. When ppl went to see transformers they didnt go “This move will be awsome because Megan Fox is in it” Yes she is hot but a pretty face and horrible acting is not a good combo.
