At least it's happening.
If everything goes smoothly, the "Uncharted" movie will finally begin filming early next year. And no, it wont' be a rehash of the stories already told in the games; it'll be an entirely new plot.
As director Seth Gordon told Zap2It :
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie."
Gordon directed "Horrible Bosses" and "Identity Thief," and now he needs a lead actor for the "Uncharted" movie. When David O. Russell was in the director's chair, it was going to be Mark Wahlberg, but now they need to find someone else. Gordon says he wants it to be a "great actor" and he added that because the game is so well done, they have to "live up" to that performance.
Too bad it couldn't have been Nolan North or Nathan Fillion. Too old now, I guess.
