Only A few short weeks after screenwriter Joe Carnahan (The Grey) announced he was finished with the script for the long awaited Uncharted movie and we now have an early look at the films plot thanks to casting site myentertainmentworld.com
“A descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nathan Drake believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, a cursed golden statue. the search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray.”
The brief story summary listed should be familiar to fans of the series, as the first game is also centered on Nathan Drake’s search for the fabled ancient city of El Dorado. We expect a more detailed synopsis to release as the film heads into production later this Spring. Filming is set to take place in Colombia.
Uncharted appears to be closer than ever after years of setbacks sent the film into “development hell.” The film has gone through multiple iterations, including an adaptation by David O. Russell (American Hustle) which would have starred Mark Wahlberg and Robert De Niro as well as a version by Neil Burger (Limitless).
Stranger Things and Night at the Museum director Shawn Levy is currently attached to direct the film based on Joe Carnahan’s script. No casting has been revealed at this time.
Rest assured, we will keep you updated on all future developments.
