Sony Pictures has reportedly named a new writer to tackle Nathan Drake’s adventures. Joe Carnahan appears to be handling the script responsibilities for the upcoming Uncharted film.
Carnahan won’t be behind the camera. He’s about to tackle Bad Boys 3 with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
The movie has gone through a number of revisions. In 2014, we reported that a script was being worked on by Safe House writer David Guggenheim. Earlier this year, Uncharted 4 and The Last of Us creative director Neil Druckmann said that both films are quite a way out.
The Uncharted film will be produced by the team of Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Ari Arad, and Alex Gartner. Sony reiterated this morning the success of Uncharted 4 when discussing its financials.
