Uncharted To Become “Film Franchise" Says Movie Producer

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves was one of the movies games that really made some of Hollywood’s productions look silly. It was put together in such an proper and well thought out fashion that the producers responsible for making the movie feel pressured to guarantee an stellar, award winning effort.

There goes a perfect game...

It won't make the games bad it will just be another crappy movie.

Uwe Boll! Sign him on to direct, and i'm sold.

nycredude3038d ago

Get lucasfilms on this or Stephen Spielberg!

rockleex3038d ago

Better than 90% of mainstream movies you see.

I have faith in the Uncharted movies.

As long as none of them are as bad as Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li.

Yeah really, this is one of those games where I don't think it is actually possible for a movie to do it any type of justice. I mean Resident Evil, Prince of Persia and a dozen other movies could have been good if the producers had actually bothered to care, but I don't see anyone making a better adaptation than the game.

I think it is more of an issue that game story and presentation is designed for a game not a movie. In fact, most game stories have very few character developments and plot. The game world itself though could be very large.

There are only a few games I can think of that meets the criteria, and that is Mass Effect and Alan Wake. Most other games should just stick to gaming. I can't even imagine how bad the Gears of War move is going to be, but I guess they can't top Chun-Li movie!!!

In addition, the way you view the game doesn't translate well to the movie screen. With the added fact that gamers already have a pre-conceived idea of their franchise, it is a recipe for disaster.

A lot of games don't necessary sell because of the story, but the game play!

Nathan Fillion as Nathan Drake!

movements3038d ago

They're not just talking about one movie here like we all know. They're talking full blown franchise!

DaysUntold3038d ago

I think Uncharted would make a great movie.

stevenhiggster3038d ago (Edited 3038d ago )

With the right actors and director and stuff.
They better not screw it up, the Hitman movie says hi.

creatchee3038d ago

They need to get Eddie Cibrian to play Drake. He is absolutely perfect for the role...

It would also do wonders to game sales.

@above - Comic book movies recently have been booming and doing a great job of representing the respective franchises, hopefully some one can figure out how to do the same thing with games. Prince of Persia will hopefully be the first to do the same. Remember how bad the Super Mario Bros and Street Fighter movies were?

claterz3038d ago

Yep, National Treasure but more badass lol. And if you havn't seen National Treasure, go watch it!

KingstonPro3038d ago

Yeah, just like the rest of the "great" game based movies we have seen in the last decade?

The movie is going to push the sales of Uncharted 1+2 and if the movie comes out before Uncharted 3 the sales are going to sky rocket.

movements3038d ago

Googpoint artificial heart!

sikbeta3038d ago (Edited 3038d ago )

But the More Important thing is That They don't Screw The Uncharted Movie franchise like lot of Movie Studios were doing for so long with other Games...

Uncharted Movie will be Great if there is not Stupid Changes with Lame/poor plots and If it has the Same Development Effort like with The Uncharted Games

I'm Hoping the Best For this One...

Every video game adaptation into a movie has been successful.
