Is there a game better than Uncharted 2: Among Thieves? Many will argue yes and others will lash out with a resounding no. It is however, one of the better titles ever created, and that’s something we who’ve played the game can agree to.
There’s no way such an awesome game could have escape from Hollywood’s claws, especially with its captivation narrative and a wealth of stories that could derive from it.
So Hollywood has gotten its hands on the Uncharted franchise, but since the second game was released, film producer Ari Arad, the man responsible for making the Uncharted flick, has been feeling the “pressure”.
“We’re still hard at work on the script for the Uncharted movie,” Arad told Gamepro Magazine, “actually Naughty Dog threw the gauntlet down by making the second video game in the series, Among Thieves, such a masterpiece.”
“Now, we’re not only feeling tremendous pressure to get the movie made, but it now has to live up to the awesomeness of Uncharted 2, which truly raise the bar for the franchise.”
He continued: “You just don’t want to start filming a movie like this until everything is right.”
I for one am hoping Ari Arad and his team surprise us all and make a great movie, especially if he expects it to become a “movie franchise”.
What do you think? Will Hollywood deliver this time, or will it be another game-turn-movie flop? Share your thoughts.
