Here’s more Uncharted movie news — not that it’s getting any closer to being released (or even made at that). In an interview with IGN, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg said that Naughty Dog did ask them more than once to write the script for the movie, which has been stuck in film hell since mid-2007.
According to the two, they turned down the offer as they didn’t know how to bring it to the big screen. Regarding their reasoning, Goldberg said “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.”
A LOT of names have been attached and removed from the project: David O. Russell, Mark Wahlberg, Avi Arad, Joshua Oppenheimer, Neil Burger and Marianne and Cormac Wibberley. There have been multiple scripts and rewrites. Some fans have even taken up the task of making the movie themselves over at the IGN boards.
Will we ever get an Uncharted movie?
