new interview with the film adaptation's director: David Gordon (Horrible Bosses, The King of Kong, Identity Thief) says the Uncharted movie will start pre-production immediately with plans to start filming in 2015 - possibly with a targeted release date soon after Uncharted 4 releases on PS4, which is predicted to be fall/winter 2015. So, we could potentially see the Uncharted film in Summer/Fall 2016 if everything goes smoothly!
Initially I wasn't so keen on this new directorial choice (which looks like it's actually going to follow through this time) but thinking about it now... I'm actually really excited to see what David Gordon will do, what with the recent explosion of new(er) directors coming into the blockbuster movie world and delivering well received tentpoles (from the Russos with Captain America 2 to Gareth Edwards and Godzilla to Rupert Wyatt and Rise of the Planet of the Apes).
I'm loving what he's saying in this recent interview:
“I think very early next year. That’s the plan. That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie… It’s going to honor the mythology of the game, but I would say honor some of the most interesting stuff from the first one and build from there. There’s some stuff that isn’t in the game.
I love the complexity and frankly the sophistication of the storytelling in the game, and we aspire to that — but don’t want to tell the exact same story, of course — so something that doesn’t break the rules of what it did but expands. Because I feel like the people who play the games and know them well don’t want to just see the same story told. You want extra shades.
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].”
