Naughty Dog director talks The Last of United States, Uncharted films
Naughty Dog innovative director Neil Druckmann talked to director Dan Trachtenberg (10 Cloverfield Lane, Black Mirror) at the DICE Summit 2018, and in their discussion Druckmann offered his ideas on exactly what he desires and does not wish to see in the Uncharted and The Last of United States movie adjustments presently in advancement.
Regarding the Uncharted film’s organized instructions of being an origin story for the lead character Nathan Drake, Druckmann stated (by means of ScreenRant):
“The Uncharted movie, yeah, we’ve had some conversations with Shawn Levy. And he’s really passionate, gets it, and I think he understands where we’re at. We’ve kind of evolved our feelings towards these kind of adaptations over the years. We used to just be excited, ‘Oh, my god, movies are looking at us. There could be an Uncharted movie on the screen.’ And then as more time passes on, we’re not excited about a direct adaptation of the story we told, because we feel like we’ve already told that story very well, cinematically, so I don’t know what else you could bring to it. … [Shawn Levy] wanting to tell a different story than the main four adventures – with potentially a young Nathan Drake, that fills in the gaps – I think is a lot more interesting than trying to retell Uncharted 1, 2, 3, and 4.”
Tom Holland ( Spider-Man: Homecoming, Captain America: Civil War) is presently set to play the function of a young Nathan Drake, with Shawn Levy ( Stranger Things) helming the production.
And when it comes to The Last of United States film script, Druckmann stated:
“…And even I worked on the script for The Last of Us film, which was a direct adaptation. And now, having some separation from it, I look back and [am] like, ‘I don’t want that movie to be made.’”
Despite his apprehension with a one-to-one retelling of the computer game’s story, Druckman did reveal more interest in seeing a motion picture that happens in The Last of United States‘ world however informs a completely various story with a various cast of characters.
“Maybe there’s something that could be done in the world, either focusing on other characters or other time. But, for me, and I know for Naughty Dog and for a lot of our fans, Nolan North is Nathan Drake, Ashley Johnson is Ellie, Troy Baker is Joel. And it would be very disorienting to see someone else in that role.”
Naughty Dog’s video games have actually been applauded for their cinematic storytelling, so it has actually constantly appeared apparent that film adjustments would occur. The Last of United States movie fell under advancement hell back in 2016 Maybe a brand-new vision for the script may simply be the dive begin it requires. And when it comes to the Uncharted film, fresh-faced Tom Holland as the lead in a plot that both series fans and the typical spectator can take pleasure in may simply be the formula for a real video game-based hit.Related youtube video: (not from post)
