Drake's Fortune to become a film
There is another console game to film adaptation on the way. This time it is Drake's Fortune getting the feature file treatment.
With elements of Indiana Jones and Tomb Raider, it won't exactly be conquering new territory.
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune was released at the end of 2007. It followed Nathan Drake, the supposed descendant of Sir Francis Drake. He sets out to find the lost treasure of El Dorado, accompanied by a friend and a journalist.
Despite my love for console games I've managed to miss this one. It will be added to my rental queue pretty quickly though. It sounds quite similar to Tomb Raider, with a bit of Indiana Jones in there too. No surprise then that a film version is on it's way. Perhaps the real surprise though, is that it has taken this long for someone to decide to make a film out of it.
The Hollywood Reporter, through Cinematical, say that Kyle Ward will write the screenplay. He has previously written the script for the game to film adaptation of Kane & Lynch. And he is also writing Hitman 2, which we heard about recently.
Has anyone played the game? Do you think it will make for an interesting film?
