The core truth about Hollywood is that execs and other decision-makers tend to think in patterns. Find success in one genre or role, and you’ll be bound to that thing for years to come. And what of those who do manage to break out? The time can come in which an early success proves to be just the resume item needed to get a big job.
Which brings us to Seth Gordon, who directed the video game doc The King of Kong before moving to broad comedies like Identity Thief and Horrible Bosses. He’s just been hired by Sony to direct the film based on the Uncharted series of PlayStation games. Read More »
Producer Avi Arad Says ‘Uncharted’ Movie Will Hit First, Followed By ‘Metal Gear Solid’ and ‘Mass Effect’
Posted on Friday, August 30th, 2013 by Germain Lussier
A ton of major video games are currently being developed in Hollywood. Just recently, Watch Dogs got started, we saw test footage from Warcraft and heard about Gran Turismo coming to life. Looking back further, games based on Uncharted, Metal Gear Solid and Mass Effect have been bubbling for several years. However, despite a few close calls, it doesn’t feel like any of them are closer to coming to the big screen.
That’s not the case, says producer Avi Arad. The man best known for producing the Spider-Man movies also has a big hand in producing those last three franchises. In a new interview, he offered up significant updates on them all. He says Uncharted will probably come first and that Metal Gear Solid is probably three years away. Though he’s had the Mass Effect rights since 2008, that one would likely come after the first two. Read More »

As writers, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have worked almost exclusively in comedy, from their days collaborating on Da Ali G Show to their new directorial effort This Is the End. But at least one person is hoping they’ll branch out.
Rogen revealed in an interview that Naughty Dog, the developer behind the Uncharted series, have repeatedly asked the pair to script the movie adaptation. However, they’ve always turned it down, and don’t sound much interested in it now, either. Find out why after the jump.

Christopher Nolan and David Goyer aren’t the only people involved with Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel. Producer Charles Roven has been along for the long superhero ride, too. Roven, who produced all those films along with Three Kings, Twelve Monkeys and others, is one of the unheralded architects of Warner Bros. DC line-up.
We sat down with the producer (center, with director Zack Snyder and producer Deborah Snyder) on the occasion of the Man of Steel release to talk about the film’s moral dilemmas, the level of destruction, challenges in effects, what the name “Christopher Nolan” meant to the marketing, as well as updates on films he’s attached to from Warcraft to Voltron and Uncharted.

Nathan Drake, the star of the Uncharted games, is the video game Indiana Jones. He’s charming, he’s a bad-ass and he travels the world getting into ancient-themed adventures. In video game form, the Uncharted world was built to be cinematic and that’s why Hollywood has been trying to make a live action movie for a long time.
Unfortunately, that has yet to take place. But now anyone who wants to see these games as movies can do just that. Reddit user morphinapg edited the cinematic cut scenes from the PlayStation 3 games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception each into their own individual movies clocking in at about two hours, three hours and three hours plus respectively. That’s an eight hour Uncharted trilogy that you can watch right now. Read More »

The development of a film version of Sony’s treasure-hunting action/adventure game series Uncharted has turned into a surprisingly thorny process. Original director David O. Russell decided to depart from many story elements as presented in the games, and wanted to cast Mark Wahlberg as lead character Nathan Drake. Neither of those ideas sat well with a vocal legion of fans. Ultimately they didn’t sit well with Sony, either, and David O. Russell departed the picture.
Not long ago Neil Burger (Limitless) signed to replace him, and is in the process of developing a new script. With the Limitless DVD hitting this week, Mr. Burger is doing a bit of press. In fielding questions about the film he hasn’t revealed much, but does say that an all-new script is being created, and that the game story is likely to be front and center. Read More »
