After nearly seven years in development, Sony's Uncharted movie adaptation is moving forward once again. The studio has brought on writer-director Joe Carnahan to write the script for this video game adaptation, but unfortunately he won't be directing at this time. The filmmaker stated that he would love to direct this project "in a perfect world," but right now, he's only set to write the script.
The last we heard about this project was in June 2015, when Seth Gordon dropped out as the director. Variety reports that Joe Carnahan's involvement with Sony's Bad Boys 3, which starts filming early next year after Will Smith wraps on Bright, makes the filmmaker unavailable to direct. Here's what Joe Carnahan told the site about this project.
"In a perfect world I would love to do both, but right now, I'm only on board to write the script. Archaeology today is in itself an antiquity, »
Despite essentially being stuck in development hell for years now, Sony Pictures is still moving ahead with a big-screen adaptation of Uncharted! Variety is reporting that Joe Carnahan has signed on to pen the latest draft of the script for the upcoming adaptation of the wildly popular Playstation-exclusive video game series. Carnahan is now the latest in a long line of writers to have worked on at least one iteration or another of the film's script, following Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty), who was the most recent person to complete a draft, David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook), Thomas Dean Donnelly (Sahara), Joshua Oppenheimer (Sahara), David Guggenheim (Safe House), and Cormac & Marianne Wibberley (National Treasure). Carnahan also revealed that he's "only on board to write the script" and not direct due to scheduling conflicts with his upcoming production Bad Boys 3, which would seemingly suggest that Sony plans on starting »

"Forget everything that you think you know." Disney has unveiled a teaser trailer for Marvel's Doctor Strange, which just finished shooting in New York City last week. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the Sorcerer Supreme, a comic book superhero that gains his special powers after meeting The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton. The full cast features Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Scott Adkins, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg and Benedict Wong. This is just a teaser so they don't reveal too much (including his full cape costume) but what we do see looks pretty damn cool. A bit of The Matrix, a bit of Inception, and lots of Benedict Cumberbatch. I'm looking forward to this more than the next Avengers. Here's the first official trailer for Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange, from Disney's YouTube: Benedict Cumberbatch plays Doctor Strange and Tilda Swinton plays The Ancient One. The script was originally written »
