AmyH, Creative Director of Naughty Dog has announced, in a recent liveblog over at the official Playstation Blog, that the U:DF movie has been in some form or another of production for the last year and a half.
This means that the movie will be out sooner than I thought, anyone know average production times for movies?
Cant wait for the movie, hope they'll show a trailer soon
i'm curious are they remaking U:DF into film form or using the name and making a whole other story? anyway, they're in good hands Avi Arad is good.
I'm supposing its based on the game, albeit loosely, including the whole Sir Francis Drake thing as well as the ending.
So I don't think we'll see this film until mid to late next year. Hopefully they are looking to release it as a summer flick. It would be a perfect fit.
I hope the film is significantly different than the game, I don't want exactly the same ending, because I'm probably going to know what'll happen at the end of the film straight away!
but then again I dont want it to be totally different as I still want it to be true to the franchise
Hopefully, it turns out good.
has the release year at 2011. No other info on the movie is posted.
Yea I'd say that would probably be about right. If they're still in pre-production or even development still(which obviously they are with no director or actors named or anything. and Ward currently working on the script maybe?), then 2011 sounds about right. Especially considering the nature of this movie and it being a big budget one (i'm sure). Now they still have to go through more pre-production. Then we got production and filming. And being as I'd figure they'll most like film on location at multiple locations, filming could take a while. Then you'll have post production which will be a very big process on a movie of this nature. So I'd say 2011 at the earliest probably. Summer of 2011 would be a
I wonder if the "video game into movie equals P.O.S" scenario will have the same effect on this upcoming movie. I honestly see it as a curse now. I hope it at least turns out good. Hopefully its animated and not live action, live action would be just a suicide mans game.
I don't think live action would ruin this. You can go ahead and get it out of your head though, no chance in hell this is animated.
hope it has good graphics and run at 1080p lol
ND could put a teaser trailer at the end of U2.
I hope this film does Uncharted justice and hopefully it brings more attention to this game and Uncharted2. More people need to go out and buy this amazing series.
The Uncharted games really deserve recognition. I remember wondering why Sony was really pushing Uncharted and bundling it with the 160gb and giving it away in promotions etc for the past 2 years, makes sense now.
makes sense how they were bundling the game and so on
One and a half years ago, it was a brand new IP and they have already turned it into a film? blimey times must be hard on the movie scene,
points more to the game's great plot and cinematic style, which, to anyone who has played it, leaves them thinking they just played a movie, rather than pointing to a drought in movie ideas.
doctorstrange...it's a great game, but its bmovie quirks and dialogue have been done before. the dark haired "wahlberg-esque" young guy, the seasoned old guy, and the beautiful lady reporter chick girl thing person, whatever. it's been done before. and doing it again but off the dialogue and story of a GAME is going to be...weird. edit: i agree, cliche doesn't mean bad. honestly i can't tell you that the movie will be a flop since that's not true, it can potentially be a great movie. i'm only going off what i know and have observed. but think about it: if the formula remains the same, doesn't the result? it's like three different brands of lemon/lime soda and they all taste the same right? it takes some sort of unique personal contribution to the formula to make it Sprite :)
You make a good point, but then again most movies follow a similar structure, and yet they can be very good. Additionally the India Jones series proved that this kind of movie can be very enjoyable (except for the last one). Clichéd doesn't mean bad.
I think this movie has the potential to be the first game adaptation that is actually good. Sony's games have been known for their cinematic quality, and it's no coincidence that they also have a film studio under their banner. Shadow of the Colossus is another movie they have rumored to be in production, and that game gets alot of love amongst the hollywood elite. Gullermo Del Toro constantly praises it as his favorite game and Adam Sandler even put it in one of his movies. My Top 3 picks for Nathan Drake 1.Nathan Fillion 2.Eric Bana 3.Jeremy Renner(Hurt Locker = Awesome) http://www.imdb.com/name/nm...
i can't wait to see the movie and play the UC2!!!
Preproduction and production are two VASTLY different things. I would venture a guess that this is actually in the pre-preproduction phase at this point since we're just hearing about this getting a green light.
but I hope you are wrong
I hope they actually spend some money on it to make it great! Not like Street Fighters..:)
when the original Uncharted released? wow that's a long time ago.
