Finally Sony Pictures Entertainment’s film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s video game series, Uncharted is moving forward.
Back in July 2016, Joe Carnahan was hired to script the film and today he has finally finished his draft for the movie and it is ready to begin filming.
He broke this news on his Instagram with a photo of the script and the following caption: “Done and Dusted. Now the REAL work begins.
If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I wanna read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.”
Previous drafts of the script were written by Mark Boal, David O. Russell, Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, David Guggenheim, Marianne and Cormac Wibberley.
Uncharted will be based on the action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive.
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 escalated when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets.”
Uncharted will be produced by Avi Arad under Atlas Entertainment Production banner with Charles Roven, and Alex Gartner.
The filming is set to begin in late spring of 2017.
