It's been a while since we've heard anything regarding the upcoming adaptations for Sony's The Last of Us and Uncharted, but this week brings a quick one from Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann...but it's not good news. Come inside to check out the latest on these video game films.
If you've been looking forward to seeing Naughty Dog's amazing video game stories come to life on the big screen, I wish I had better news for you. Uncharted has been in the works for a Long while, cycling through many directors and release dates (currently it is supposed to hit on June 30, 2017).

There's almost no game developer with a greater reputation than Naughty Dog. From the "Uncharted" series to "The Last of Us," the studio's video games have been amongst the most acclaimed titles of the past decade.
Film adaptations of their properties, something that seems a logical extension considering their knack for cinematic narratives, have not been so lucky.

Alas, it’s a similar story when it comes to the publisher’s long-gestating Uncharted movie, with numerous actors and directors – including Mark Wahlberg, David O. Russell and Baywatch helmer Seth Gorden – ducking out of the project before it could make the defining leap from Sony’s proverbial drawing board.

During an interview with IGN, Druckmann noted that although there was once a script in the works, the Naughty Dog team “haven’t seen anything in a while,” indicating that it too has been placed on ice over at Sony.

Tribeca Film Festival, I love you but you made a very serious mistake. On Monday, the widely discredited and dangerous anti-vaccination quack Andrew Wakefield tweeted: “Haven’t posted forever. Huge news tomorrow.” Perhaps he hadn’t “posted forever” because the media finally stopped giving him a megaphone. Perhaps once people in America and England began dying of measles, journalists finally realized that the “two sides to every story” approach granted Wakefield was literally killing people. Last I heard, Wakefield was headlining Conspira-Sea, a seven-day cruise where passengers learn about crop circles, chemtrails, yogic flying, Esp and astrology. Good, I thought, that’s where […] »
