Remember the Uncharted film planned back in 2007? The movie was going to be directed by David O. Russell and star Mark Wahlberg as Nathan Drake. The script was radically different from the video games, with Robert De Niro cast as Drake's father and Joe Peschi as his uncle. The movie came close to filming in 2011 before Russell left the project due to creative differences with Sony. Of course, an Uncharted movie is still a possibility. But who could write the script adapting one of gaming's biggest franchises?
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg can. The pair have scripted many films before, such as Pineapple Express and Superbad. They recently made their directorial debut with This is the End, a movie that I highly recommend. Naughty Dog has approached the pair several times to convince them to draft the Uncharted script. What's been the response?
"It's just going to be Indiana Jones. If we could figure out a way to make it not Indiana Jones, it'd be awesome." — Evan Goldberg
It seems the pair want to give the franchise the treatment it deserves instead of a simple Indiana Jones clone. Could they be a good fit for the movie? Would Jonah Hill make a great Nathan Drake? How about Danny McBride as Sully? Sound off in the comments.
