I believe Gordon’s intentions toward the franchise are noble. Gordon is a talented filmmaker. " | Explosion.com

Why does this have an Xbox 360 tag?

XiNarutoUzumaki1316d ago (Edited 1316d ago )

Because Xbox is Dying for a game like the Uncharted Series. Tomb Raider doesn't cut it.

I'll see myself out.

"I'll see myself out" you actually made me laugh for once

I thought it was pretty funny too. Bubbles good sir.

Kind of a stupid title..

Uncharted is unfilmable... Check out our interview with the director of said movie.. Lol

Its completely film able.. Just because its likely to suck like the other game based movies doesn't mean its "unfilmable"

Look at need for speed.. Even Jesse pinkman couldn't save that crap lol

ShowGun9011316d ago

seriously, was "Raiders of the Lost Ark" unfilmable? cause its still just a scruffy dude (with a unbelievable amount of historic knowledge) looking for treasure, and killing tons of baddies... don't see how it would be harder to make, do yall?

WeAreLegion1316d ago

A scruffy nerfherder, to be exact.

jukins1316d ago

I know right. Copy, not blatantly, Indiana Jones and go from there heh.

Baka-akaB1316d ago

Hell National Treasure , for all its fault , could have been an (much weaker) episode of Uncharted too ...

SpinalRemains1381316d ago

Right, because Uncharted is just like a Spielberg film. Smh

It's going to suck because they are making the first mistake every video game film does....they aren't doing Drakes Fortune they are doing their own story.

Straying from the source material NEVER WORKS

I'd rather see a copy and pasted story using the same script lines which has a chance to be good then seeing them straying away from the game and it being crap

randomass1711316d ago

Remember the controversy surrounding the I Heart Huckabees director? He was going to turn it into The Godfather! Seems like the new writers are making a similar mistake...

BitbyDeath1316d ago

Got a link stating it won't be based on the source material? Was hoping it would be given the last failed attempt.

"Won't Retell the Games' Story"

Meaning no El Dorado I'm guessing

"There's some stuff that isn't in the game"

Don't have a clue what the fudge he's on about there.

"-but don't want to tell the exact same story, of course--so something that doesn't break the rules of what it did but expands," he added. "Because I feel like the people who play the games and know them well don't want to just see the same story told. You want extra shades."

Even though every film tries to do this and fails. He does realise the film isn't for gamers but for a newer audience. I don't mind if it's exactly the same and I, as a gamer, knows what Drake is going to say next or where they are going or what the twist is, long as it's good.

Seems a little stuck up his own arse to be honest, thinking he knows best.

Thanks have a helpful bubble.

You'd think the success of Walking Dead and Game of Thrones would get more directors using the source material rather than their own garbage versions.

windblowsagain1316d ago

How is it unfilmable.

I could make an Uncharted Movie easily with a decent budget.

skydragoonity1316d ago (Edited 1316d ago )

An uncharted movie is unnecessary. The game is a perfect piece of art already. There can only be 1 mona lisa.
