Columbia Pictures has reportedly hired Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) to work on the screenplay for ‘Uncharted,’ the live-action adaptation of the top selling PlayStation video game series ‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.’ Seth Gordon is attached to direct, and the next step is to find a protagonist to play Nathan “Nate” Drake, the treasure and antiquities hunter and descendant of the famed explorer Sir Francis Drake. With journalist Elena Fisher and his mentor Victor Sullivan by his side, Drake attempts to find the lost treasure of El Dorado. The film – which is set for set for June 10th, 2016 – is being envisioned as a swashbuckling adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones.
The video game series includes ‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,’ its sequel ‘Uncharted 2: Among Thieves,’ and second sequel ‘Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception.’ Among Thieves is the highest rated title of the series so far, currently standing as the 3rd-highest rated PlayStation 3 title on Metacritic, and won numerous Game of the Year awards. There are also ‘Uncharted: Golden Abyss’ and ‘Uncharted: Fight for Fortune’ for Sony’s PlayStation Vita handheld system. The next main installment will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 4. The series has sold almost 20 million copies worldwide.
