Writer, producer and director Joe Carnahan has been tapped by Sony to tackle the script for the video game adaptation of the Uncharted script. Uncharted has seen its share of writers attached but unable to come up with anything to green light.
The news via Variety is the entering the world of Nathan Drake is a a dream come true for Joe.
“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,” he said. “Plus, the property itself is so popular that it was hard to turn down an opportunity to work on it.”
Unfortunately, The A-Team and The Grey director is not currently set to direct as he’ll be helming Bad Boys 3 when production starts.
However, he has tweeted the following:
Fans of the "UNCHARTED" series.
Breathe easy friends.
I got this one. #NathanDrake

I wanna get with @Naughty_Dog & make sure we line things up creatively on "Uncharted". Hugely important to me. Gotta make creators happy.
