Ruben Fleischer directing Gangster Squad

Just before New Year’s Eve, Sony Pictures lost yet another director who was attached to helm the video game adaptation Uncharted. The project felt like it was finally becoming a reality, but then Dan Trachtenberg left. He was replaced a month later by Travis Knight, but the fast-track that Sony had the movie on resulted in him leaving too. Now we’re dealing with the eighth director who will attempt to make the project happen: Venom and Zombieland franchise director Ruben Fleischer. Read More »

Sony’s Uncharted movie continues to be just as cursed as the treasure that protagonist Nathan Drake has sought in the games.

The long-brewing film adaptation of the popular video game series has just lost director Travis Knight (Kubo and the Two Strings, Bumblebee) to a scheduling conflict, making him the seventh filmmaker – seventh! – to be attached and then part ways with this project. But Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg are still attached, leaving a sliver of hope that this movie will actually happen one day. Read More »

Years ago, Mark Wahlberg was floated as a possible lead for an Uncharted movie. Now, the Uncharted movie is finally happening, and while Wahlberg won’t be the lead, he’s going to be in the film after all.

Uncharted movie

Not long ago, the long-developing adaptation of Uncharted set up at Sony Pictures hit yet another speed bump by losing director Dan Trachtenberg. The filmmaker behind 10 Cloverfield Lane left the project in August, though no reason was given for his departure. It was the second blow for a Sony project starring Tom Holland after Sony and Marvel were having trouble negotiating a new deal to share the rights to Spider-Man and keep him in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But Sony has fixed both problems.

Hot on the heels of the announcement of a new deal between Sony and Marvel for a third Spider-Man movie produced by Kevin Feige, Sony Pictures is currently in talks with Bumblebee director Travis Knight to take over the video game adaptation, and Tom Holland is still slated to star in the movie as adventurer Nathan Drake.

Though Sony has been trying for nearly 10 years, the studio still hasn’t been able to adapt the popular video game series Uncharted into a blockbuster movie. It’s experienced a revolving door of directors and that door continues to spin, because Real Steel and Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy, the fourth person to be attached, has now vacated the position as well.

Uncharted fan film

Ever since the first Uncharted video game arrived back in 2007, fans have wanted to see actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle) play the lead role of Nathan Drake, a treasure-hunting adventurer/thief, in a movie adaptation. The actor bears a striking physical resemblance to the video game protagonist, and Fillion has proven capable of matching the character’s sarcastic temperament and quick wit in parts he’s played in the past. An Uncharted movie has been in the works for years at Sony, but since Fillion isn’t going to be involved with that project, he’s taken matters into his own hands.

In this unofficial live-action Uncharted fan film, Fillion finally suits up as Nathan Drake – and he’s joined by a cast of familiar faces in key supporting roles. Check out the short film below.
