Uncharted Film Begins Production Next Year

A few months after it was revealed that “Horrible Bosses” director Seth Gordon would be helming the film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s popular PlayStation video game series “Uncharted,” the filmmaker has offered a brief update on the project.

Gordon tells Zap2It that the writing team has gotten the script into a “really good place” and it boasts a very international flavour. As for when they will begin filming? “I think very early next year. That’s the plan. That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie.”

The lead role of Nathan Drake has yet to be cast and the hunt is still on for the lead: “I want it to be a great actor. That’s number one, and then if it’s someone who has an actual jaw, that’s even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There’s no way we’d do the inverse of that where it’s somebody famous who can’t [act].”
