Uncharted Movie Adds Bad Boys 3 Director to Write Script
Bad Boys 3 director Joe Carnahan would love to direct an Uncharted movie, but he's only on to write the script.
The Uncharted movie has had many names attached to it, including Mark Wahlberg and American Hustledirector David O. Russell. Now, Variety reports that the Uncharted movie has a new script writer in Bad Boys 3 director Joe Carnahan.
Carnahan has produced and directed many films, including Smokin' Aces, The A-Team, and The Grey. He's also worked on television shows such as The Blacklist and State of Affairs. Bad Boys 3 is his next project, though he says he'd love to direct an Uncharted movie as well.
"In a perfect world I would love to do both, but right now, I’m only on board to write the script," he said. "Archaeology today is in itself an antiquity, but that world has always fascinated me. Especially when you go to a museum today and wonder how a piece got there to begin with. Plus, the property itself is so popular that it was hard to turn down an opportunity to work on it."
The Uncharted movie doesn't currently have any actors on board. It does, however, have producers in Charles Roven, Avi Arad, and Alex Gartner, in addition to Sony creative exec Jonathan Kadin's supervision.
In 2015, Nathan Drake voice actor Nolan North said that fans don't want a movie, "no matter who's the star of it."
Despite what fans may want, the Uncharted movie has had some difficulty getting off the ground. The production has seen many different castings and directors. Additionally, filming was supposed to start in 2015, though that didn't happen. Details from the film were revealed as part of last year's Sony email leak.
