Sony look set to finally bring the Uncharted movie to cinemas, but it turns out that developer Naughty Dog know nothing at all about the project. This is contrary to an interview that script writer Joe Carnahan held with Collider.
“I’m very happy with the script, and listen it was important that I got Amy Hennig’s approval, her and Nolan North, and what I’ve heard is the Naughty Dog guys are really happy with it,” Carnahan said. “But who knows? That could be like Donald Trump hearing something; that may not be true at all.”
After the interview went live, Uncharted 4’s creative director Neil Druckmann had this to say:
A recent quote from the writer of the Uncharted film. We know nothing about the film. Wish he'd stop implying that he has our support. pic.twitter.com/He1AHK53TI— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) February 25, 2017
As Kotaku points out, Druckmann also shared his lack of involvement on the project earlier.
No one at Naughty Dog has read the script. No idea what the movie is about let alone its tone. https://t.co/lc64Pevqyk— Neil Druckmann (@Neil_Druckmann) February 23, 2017
Carnahan completed the latest script for the Uncharted movie in January. His previous directorial efforts include The Grey, starring Liam Neeson.
