An Uncharted movie has been in development for years. Fans of the video game series have been eager to see the adventurous story of Nathan Drake come to the screen, and a few different filmmakers have tried to get the project off the ground. David O. Russell was attached to direct for a while, then eventually dropped out. Neil Burger (Divergent) flirted with the pic as well, but he too fell by the wayside. Even Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were approached to pen an adaptation, but they subsequently declined. Finally, earlier this year, Columbia Pictures tapped Horrible Bosses and The King of Kong director Seth Gordon to take the helm.
Gordon hasn’t departed the project yet so things appear to be going smoothly, and in fact the filmmaker recently revealed that the plan is to start filming early next year. More after the jump.
