“[The script] is a BEAST,” says Carnahan.
Writer Joe Carnahan has completed his draft of the Uncharted movie—a script he calls “monstrously cool.”
“Done and Dusted,” Carnahan wrote alongside an image of the script on Instagram. “Now the REAL work begins. If there’s a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I wanna read it, ‘cuz this thing is a BEAST.”
The Uncharted movie was first announced in 2009. After nearly 8 years of on-again, off-again development, Carnahan was brought on to write the script. A few months later, Stranger Things director Shawn Levy was tapped to helm the film.
Levy has since confirmed he’s “started some very secret, low-grade conversations and explorations of actors” for the role of Uncharted protagonist Nathan Drake. He also spoke about the tone of Carnahan’s script, saying it channels “that Nathan-blend of real guy, heroism, snarky, funny wit.”
The Uncharted movie is currently without a release date, but Levy hopes to complete filming in 2017.
We want to hear it.
