Drake’s Fortune movie on the burner

Draked!Who honestly didn’t see this coming? With video game adaptations being in “vogue” recently (though many are being shelved), studios are in heat over the which franchise to bring to the big screen.

And then there’s Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, whose Nate Drake is pretty much a hipster’s version of Indiana Jones. He’s pretty much Indy, if Indy were more sarcastic and didn’t tuck in his shirts all the way. Nate had high adventures in exotic locations and against supernatural foes. Perfect, we have our next Pirates of the Caribbean!

So, who will be responsible for the film version? Kyle Ward was just hired to write the script, who has a past resume that I guarantee you have never heard of, seeing that it involves the sum total of one movie. I don’t think it was ever released. Oh, now my hopes are so high! Good thing scripting Uncharted shouldn’t be too tough, seeing that the game was already written like it wanted to be on the big screen.

No actors or directors are yet to be attached.

The movie is produced by Avi Arad for Columbia Pictures, a Sony subsidiery of course.

Originally reported by THR.

    Hector votes for Nathan Fillion as Drake. Yeah I hope if they eventually do this thing that they do an original story rather than adapting THIS one and then changing absolutely everything…you know, just like how everyone writes screenplays for everything else.
