In Joe Carnahan‘s The Grey, a group of oil workers survive a plane crash in the Alaskan wilderness and trek through the elements, dying one-by-one as they’re torn to pieces by wolves or simply lose the will to live. It’s a fine metaphor for Sony’s long-gestating adaptation of the Uncharted video game series, which has been […]

2016 wasn't the year for video game movies that many movie lovers thought it would be, but there is plenty of hope on the horizon. One of the longest-running glimmers has been Sony's long-in-development Uncharted movie, and after years of false starts, the project just got one massive step closer to reality. Joe Carnahan has officially finished the script, meaning that the movie should be on track to actually go into production this year.
The director of The Grey and the upcoming Bad Boys 3 recently took to his Instagram to reveal the finished script for Uncharted. Not only is he done with the script, but he seems incredibly confident in what he was able to get down on paper, which is a good sign. Here is what he had to say about it.

It’s been a long and winding road for Sony’s live-action adaptation of the hit video game series Uncharted. For several years now the studio’s been trying to get it off the ground and so far, there hasn’t been a ton of progress made on it.

Joe Carnahan (The A-Team, The Grey) is the latest in a long line of Hollywood creatives hired to work on Sony's live-action Uncharted movie. Though he's known as a writer/director, Carnahan is only working on the Uncharted script as the film will be helmed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum, This Is Where I Leave You). Carnahan and Levy are but two of the latest names signing up for the project after creatives such as David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), Neil Burger (Limitless, Divergent) and Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses, upcoming Baywatch reboot) have all departed the project for various reasons. The film has been in development since 2008 and the closest it ever came to actually filming was a few years back when Mark Wahlberg was attached to star. Wit the disappointing performances of Assassin's Creed and Warcraft, Sony has to at least feel a little »
