Seth Rogen And Evan Goldberg Have Been Asked To Write An Uncharted Movie
Here’s a surprising bit of news that will either please or really tick off fans of Naughty Dog‘s Uncharted series- Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been approached several times to pen a script for the movie adaptation. While doing press for This Is The End, Rogen and his close friend and writing partner Evan Goldberg revealed that they had been approached several times over the past four years to make the movie.
IGN sat down with the comedic duo to talk about their movie, but while they were setting up their gear Rogen and Goldberg told them the news. The duo said they are “constantly” asked to make the movie, but they keep declining. According to them, they can’t think up the right angle for the script. Goldberg said “It’s just going to be Indiana Jones! If we could figure out a way to make it not Indiana Jones, it’d be awesome.” The Uncharted movie has been in development hell for years now. Numerous writers and directors have been attached since 2007, and at one point Mark Wahlberg was signed up for the role of Nathan Drake. As IGN mentions, Robert De Niro and Joe Peschi were cast as Drake‘s father and uncle respectively. That was in 2011, and since then there hasn’t been much going on as far as development. The problem seems to be behind the scenes. It has been pulling in big name actors, but so far the film hasn’t moved past the planning stages. Do you think Rogen and Goldberg would write a good adaptation of the game?
