Uncharted has writers

A while back it was reported that Kyle Ward would be writing the script for the upcoming film adaptation of UNCHARTED, the action-adventure game for the PS3. Well now Latino Review is reporting that Ward is out, due to contractual obligations to finish other projects like HITMAN 2. Because lord knows we’re all clamoring for HITMAN 2.

So who’s in? Allegedly that would be CONAN writing duo Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer will take over writing duties for UNCHARTED: DRAKE’S FORTUNE, and I have to admit, I am interested to see how one of the most cinematic games ever made will look being turned into an actual movie. Hopefully they’re able to do it justice, but as with any video game movie, the odds are stacked against it.

The plot of the film is officially as follows:

"Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" follows fortune hunter Nathan Drake, who is a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake. Believing he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue, he embarks on a journey to find it. The search becomes competitive and dangerous when a rival hunter joins the fray and mutated creatures begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.

El Dorado ain’t exactly a prime example of originality in adventure movies, but I’m looking forward to the UNCHARTED take on it nonetheless.

Extra Tidbit: Just skip ahead and do a DRAKE VS. CROFT film.
