Uncharted (2017) is an action, adventure American film in English language directed by Seth Gordon until he finally walked away from this film project. Both moviegoers and gamers are waiting for this video game adaptation. At first, everything was on the right track with the Mark Boal, an Oscar winning writer, wrote the script and Seth Gordon directed the film. However, Sony decided to take the film in another new direction. Today, there is no information about the replacement of the position that was the Seth Gordon’s.
Transforming from the video game version, some writers join this Uncharted film project. Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua and David Guggenheim come as the writers and Mark Boal, Marianne Wibberley and Cormac Wibberley come for the screenplay. Involved in the production team are Ari Arad, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Charles Roven as producers and Brent O’Connor as executive producer. Unfortunately, there is no more idea about the cast. In the team, some lists show the art department members including Court Chu, James Rothwell, Aaron Sims, Gary Damian Thomas and Simeon Wilkins.
Indeed, there is no actor and actress officially announced as the cast, but there are some rumors about this. In fact, Uncharted is still without director and star. Actually, Chris Pratt has joined this film, but he passed on this project in November. Responding this situation, the studio was eyeing Mark Wahlberg who played as Nathan Drake about 5 years ago under the direction of David O. Russell. In addition, there are also some stars that are eyed by Sony. For this project, Sony reports that something equivalent to Indiana Jones franchise is being observed.
Nathan Drake is the focal point character in this film. Nathan Drake is a descendant of an explorer named Sir Francis Drake. He is a treasure hunter that believes he has already learned the whereabouts of the El Dorado. It is the fabled South American golden city. After learning from one cursed golden statue, he searches for that city. However, not only is he searching for the city, but a rival hunter is also searching for the same thing. The fray in this Uncharted film is well arranged.
The other plot summary also tells about a descendent of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, Nathan Drake uncovers the position of the legendary El Dorado. Nathan Drake works in collaboration with a mentor and an ambitious journalist until they find the answer of the secrets. They survive on an island with lots of mercenaries, pirates and some more enemies. The Uncharted film will show moviegoers a great adventure.
In writing and directing the Uncharted film, there are some references taken. The Video Game version of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune (2007) is where everything about the film comes from. Many people love that game and are waiting for the film adaptation. The film seems to also refer to the Danville 2nd Ward Young Men: The Amazing Race Birthday Party 2010, a TV Episode with the yell of “Uncharted the Movie!” There is alto another record of E3 2015, a TV Episode showing that Jack and Rick gave a confirmation that both of them would like to see the Uncharted movie.
There are some company credits to this Uncharted 2017 film adaption. In the production, there are Atlas Entertainment, Naughty Dog, Avi Arad Productions, and Sony Computer Entertainment America. The distribution rights of this film are held by Big Picture 2 Films, Columbia Pictures, Sony Pictures Releasing and (UPI) Universal Pictures International. The film is distributed to Portugal, USA, Netherlands and some other countries.
The Uncharted film is also known as Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune in the US and Неизведанное: Удача Дрейка in Russia. The film will be released on 29th June 2017 in Netherlands and Russia, 30th June 2017 in the UK, Norway and USA, and 21st July 2017 in Sweden. We expect that this release date will not be delayed because of some errors that happened to the production of this film, including the current situation of a film production without director and stars. We hope that Sony will soon find the right director to set a new, better direction of the movie and the full cast to complete the film.
