Seth Gordon (HORRIBLE BOSSES, IDENTITY THEFT) is finalizing a deal to direct Sony’s upcoming big screen adaptation of the popular PlayStation title UNCHARTED. David O. Russell (AMERICAN HUSTLE) and Neil Burger (DIVERGENT) were previously eyeing the director’s chair but over the past several years, the project has had a hard time locking down a director of any kind.

The Naughty Dog game 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 ratcheted up several notches when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets. To date, the series has sold 17 million copies worldwide.

Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer and the writing duo of Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (NATIONAL TREASURE) all took cracks at writing the script but Sony is apparently high on the screenplay handed in by SAFE HOUSE scribe David Guggenheim. So much so that the they’ve also tapped him to begin work on the script for BAD BOYS III. While Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Ari Arad will produce the feature film, the next installment in the video game series will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4.

    “UNCHARTED” REVEALS FIRST-LOOK OF TOM HOLLAND 

    AS NATHAN DRAKE

    Columbia Pictures has unveiled the first-look images its upcoming action adventure Uncharted, adapted from the massively popular PlayStation/Naughty Dog video game franchise.

    Get your first look at Tom Holland as the young Nathan Drake and other iconic images in the stills below.








     

    In his interview with Collider.com, Holland revealed the narrative thrust of the movie adaptation. Rather than retelling one of the games’ storylines, this Uncharted will give us a Nathan Drake origin story.

    “I think what Uncharted offers that most video games films don’t is that it’s an origin story to the games,” Holland says. “So if you played the games, you haven’t seen what’s going to happen in the film. And if you haven’t played the games, you’re going to enjoy the film because it’s information that everyone else is getting at the same time.”

    Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Uncharted also stars Mark Wahlberg as Victor Sullivan.  The screenplay is by Rafe Judkins, Joe Carnahan, Art Marcum and Matthew Hollaway.  The producers are Avi Arad, Alex Gartner, Charles Roven and Ari Arad.

    Only in Philippine cinemas 2021, Uncharted will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International.  Connect with #UnchartedMovie and tag columbiapicph
