Seth Gordon, the director taking on the film adaptation of the video game “Uncharted,” has announced that he plans to start filming the project at the beginning of 2015.
Gordon told Zap2it,
“I think very early next year. That’s the plan. That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for that movie.”
Gordon also revealed that the writing team has gotten the script for the adaptation but that they are still looking for the right actor to play the main character, Drake.
“I want it to be a great actor. That’s number one, and then if it’s someone who has an actual jaw, that’s even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There’s no way we’d do the inverse of that where it’s somebody famous who can’t [act].”
The “Uncharted” movie has weaved in and out of Hollywood limbo over the last few years, so let’s hope Gordon isn’t teasing us.
At the moment there is no anticipated release date for the film though and they have yet to announce any actors attached either.
