joe carnahan,

UNCHARTED continues to be the one franchise that Sony would love to unlock, but still haven't managed to put the right pieces in place to make it work. They have cycled through numerous directors and writers in the hopes of cracking the code, but they've all led them right back to where they sit right now - firmly at square one. 

But they aren't giving up. They're going to adapt this video game into a feature film one day, or maybe die trying, and so it's no surprise they've brought in a fresh voice in the hopes of assembling a script that works to move forward with... However, you might be a bit taken back by who it is. 

Joe Carnahan will be handling only the screenplay for now, unable to direct due to his commitment with BAD BOYS 3 - unless the schedule is pushed back and his schedule then opens up. 

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, but that world has always fascinated me. Especially when you go to a museum today and wonder how a piece got there to begin with. Plus, the property itself is so popular that it was hard to turn down an opportunity to work on it.

Carnahan has been hit and miss over the years, but when he has been hit, his films have been really good. THE GREY and NARC are excellent. THE A-TEAM is a lot of fun. The good have outweighed the bad, and, if you've read his draft of the DEATH WISH that MGM keeps trying to make with MGM, you'll wish he would have been able to see his vision through. 

Bringing him onto UNCHARTED definitely feels like Sony is willing to shake things up in the hopes of finally jumpstarting some progress on the project, and who knows? Maybe Carnahan is the kick in the ass they so desperately need. I wish him the best of luck. After all, it's not like he can do any worse than those who have come before him.

I would love to see Carnahan write and direct with Chris Pine being cast as Nathan Drake.

They've worked together twice before and would be a cool film to see them work together again on.

The Rundown is the closest thing we've ever got to an Uncharted movie. It has the right amount of humor and fun with a very likable cast. An Uncharted movie probably needs to be a lot more action packed though.

I would love to see this film get made but I think Joe is the wrong guy. Shane Black would be my first choice. Or even Michael Bay directing with Black as the writer.

Michael Bay? NO.
Sorry but while the guy can definitely direct big, dumb, loud, explosion-y blockbuster action flicks, his style is ill suited for Uncharted which has a lot of story and heart in it next to the breathtaking action gameplay that the francise is famous for.

Moonrider,
Ya i know. It's my favorite game series. Black is by far my first choice. There is just such amazing action set pieces. "Bayesque" haha. Perhaps Gore Verbinski? I admit I cringe at the thought of hokey Bay dialogue.

I love A-Team. I wish he could direct it too, but I'm sure it will still benefit from his writing style.
