CONAN Remake Writers to Map UNCHARTED: DRAKE’S FORTUNE

     November 23, 2009

After countless players marveled at Uncharted 2: Among Thieves and commented that it feels like a movie, Sony still wants the popular video game franchise to actually be a movie.  For those who aren’t aware of the property, the Uncharted franchise features the adventures of Nathan Drake as he hunts for treasure through exotic locations Last summer they hired Hitman 2 writer Kyle Ward to pen an adaptation even though Hitman 2 remains in development hell.  However, Latino Review reports that Ward is out and Conan writers Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer are in to script an adaptation of the first Uncharted game, Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

While LR doesn’t reveal their source, we trust their info and it’s clear that Sony wants to fast-track the production to seize not only on video game adaptation-mania, but because of the popularity of Uncharted 2 which is being called the Best Video Game of 2009.  Let’s just hope that Donnelly and Oppenheimer can get a good job done so we can move on to speculating and arguing about who should play protagonist (I say Nathan Fillion and so should you).
