Naughty Dog, Nolan North Hope For Solid Uncharted Film
So what's your take on the upcoming "Uncharted" movie? Aren't you encouraged by the fact that Naughty Dog is close to the project?
Thing is, when the developer of the game is involved, it makes us all feel better. We're convinced the artists who created the masterpiece in question would never let Hollywood tarnish the game's good name.
Naughty Dog spoke briefly about the movie based on Nathan Drake's adventures: in an Edge interview, studio co-president Evan Wells said his team had been "working really closely" with director David O. Russell, and creative director Amy Hennig added that "if the guy who made 'Three Kings' wants to make and 'Uncharted' movie, we should be thankful." As for the voice of Nathan Drake, who will watch as Mark Wahlberg adopts the role on the silver screen:
"Is it difficult, is it strange? Yeah. But that's the business of making big movies - you need big stars. I'm very protective of what we do. If that ever infringed on what we do well, I'm burning someone's house down."
There you go. We're with you on that one, Nolan. If the movie blows, it's time to grab our torches and pitchforks; the Uncharted name has been sullied, and somebody will pay. By the way, if you'd like to hear more from North, check out a new Eurogamer interview.
