The lights are on
In a new interview, director Seth Gordon details the production timeline for his movie adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted game series.
In an interview with Zap2It, Gordon said shooting should begin "...very early next year. That's the plan."
He also talked a little bit about the game's settings, and said that the shooting would take place "all over the world."
Gordon is also still looking for a lead actor to portray Nathan Drake after Mark Wahlberg dropped out of the project after the departure of director David O. Russell.
Gordon said, "I want it to be a great actor. That's number one, and then if it's someone who has an actual jaw, that's even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There's no way we'd do the inverse of that where it's somebody famous who can't [act]."
"It's going to honor the mythology of the game," said Gordon. "But I would say honor some of the most interesting stuff from the first one and build from there," he says. "There's some stuff that isn't in the game."
Our Take:While I'm a bit concerned with the fact that this is the third director attached to the project, Uncharted is one of the game series that seems most suited to the big screen.
