Naughty Dog Talks Uncharted Movie, Praises PlayStation 3
Naughty Dog recently said that if there was enough demand for it, they'd certainly work on another Uncharted title. Furthermore, early whispers about the movie, which have coincided with the critically acclaimed launch of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, have begun to increase in number and intensity.
Thankfully, Naughty Dog creative director Amy Hennig addressed both issues in a New York Magazine interview, where they spoke about the link between games and movies. Here, she definitely confirms the Uncharted film and she adds that they've got "the best possible partners" in Columbia Pictures. "I can say from the meetings I've had with them so far, their hearts and their heads are absolutely in the right place," Hennig said. This is great news for those who will be immediately skeptical, simply because Hollywood has continued to butcher some of the finest game experiences of the past decade. As for whether or not there will be another Uncharted 2, we figure it's probably inevitable but Hennig said she couldn't answer that question. The question also asked whether or not a new game would be on Sony's next PlayStation console - which seems really unlikely to us - and Hennig replied:
"On a completely general level, the PS3 is an amazing piece of hardware that both us and other developers are only now tapping into its full potential. There’s a lot of life in that box. That’s really the best answer I can give you."
We can live with that for now. Uncharted 2 is the type of game that we can play for a good long time and remain happy, and furthermore, it will be the measuring stick against which all other action/adventure games will be compared. In short, this game will have a ton of longevity, regardless of how far off another series installment might be.
