The latest script has been completed for the Uncharted movie, penned by Joe Carnahan – better known for his directorial efforts on The Grey, starring Liam Neeson. The writer made the announcement on a post to Instagram, calling it “monstrously cool.”
No cast has been officially announced for the project. Shawn Levy looks set to direct, with previous titles including Night At The Museum, Date Night, and Real Steel. Carnahan was originally slated to direct the game-to-film adaptation, but those responsibilities shifted when he left to work on the upcoming Bad Boys movie.
The Uncharted movie has had a trouble history. Talks for a film adaptation started circulating in 2008, with an official announcement made in 2009. Multiple directors, writers, and actors have been attached and removed from the project, but development never began.
