Uncharted is one of those games that keeps threatening a big-screen adaptation and then falls it falls away again… like the floor in an Indian Jones adventure. Or Tomb Raider.
Well, it looks like, once again, it’s back on track to the cinema and this time, according to Deadline, it’s Seth Gordon – director of Horrible Bosses – who wants the gig.
The Uncharted games from Naughty Dog are about a treasure hunter called Nate Drake – a descendant of Sir Francis Drake – on the quest for El Dorado, the lost city of gold, who fights rival hunters and mutated nazi monsters. As you do.
Gordon also directed Identity Thief and Four Christmases, so we don’t see the obvious connection to a movie like this, however his first foray into filmmaking was the 2007 documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, so he is certainly a fan of gaming.
