Uncharted movie gets a re-write

Despite the 4th and apparently final game in the Uncharted series (released earlier this year) being thoroughly brilliant, it’s big screen adaptation hasn’t had such a pleasant road to release, and is now set to undergo yet another re-write, courtesy of The Gey’s Joe Carnahan.

With a host of names already having taken a crack at the script, Carnahan has been tasked with writing the video-game adaptation by Sony, and is one the studio won’t let go of too easily, given its clear potential as a money-making franchise; not only does it come with an in-built audience of video game players, but it’s a globe-hopping, action/adventure movie, where a plucky underdog uses his intellect, wiles, charm, and unlimited supply of guns, to uncover seemingly lost and/or non-existent treasure, with the help of some easy-to-like companions; think a modern Indiana Jones, National Treasure, or Tomb Raider.

Carnahan won’t direct however, as he’s already prepping Bad Boys 3 (which is due to shoot early next year), but said “In a perfect world I would love to do both, but right now, I’m only on board to write the script.”
