The film adaptation of Uncharted is setting sail for uncharted waters once again, as Sony Pictures has revealed to Variety that Joe Carnahan will write a new version of the script.
Carnahan is currently working with Sony to write and direct Bad Boys 3, but the director established his action-adventure bona fides many years ago with Smokin’ Aces, The Grey, and The A-Team.
“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,” [Carnahan] said. “Plus, the property itself is so popular that it was hard to turn down an opportunity to work on it.”
The Uncharted movie is currently expected to open on June 30, 2017. But with no script, no director, and no actors, Sony Pictures will likely be forced to reschedule it to a later date.
