Uncharted is an action-adventure third-person shooter platform video game series developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment for PlayStation consoles. The series follows treasure hunter Nathan “Nate” Drake as he travels around the world to uncover various historical mysteries.
The game has been through some up’s and down’s when it comes to finding a movie director. Shouldn’t be that hard since the game’s story is so good! Sony has hired Shawn Levy to direct the Uncharted cinematic adaptation, according to Deadline. He’ll work off the latest draft of the script written by Joe Carnahan, who was originally interesting in directing the movie, but later decided to oversee Bad Boys for Life. The report also named Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Ari Arad as producers.
In the game franchise, the stories are told in an order.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune sees Drake travel to the Amazon and an uncharted island off the coast of South America.
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves explores the snow-capped mountain landscapes of Tibet, a museum in Istanbul, the jungles of Borneo and the urban landscapes of Nepal.
Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception sees Drake through a number of locations, including the streets of London and Colombia, a château in France, a castle in Syria, a city in Yemen and the sprawling deserts of the Rub’ al Khali.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End sees Nate journey to the Rossi estate in Italy, a cathedral in Scotland, several locations in King’s Bay, Madagascar and several uncharted islands in the Indian Ocean.
I can’t wait to see how the movie will play out. I am a fan of the game and would love to see a film adaptation soon.
