According to Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg, the two were approached by Naughty Dog to pen the script for the Uncharted film.
“They’re constantly asking me and Evan to make the Uncharted movie,” Rogen told IGN during a video interview.
“For like four years now they’ve been like, ‘Make an Uncharted movie for us,'” Goldberg said. “But it’s just going to be Indiana Jones.”
“They’ve been asking us to write it for years,” Rogen added.
A film adaptation of Uncharted has been in the works for a few years now, with various names attached to direct the feature, including David O’Russell (Three Kings) and Neil Burger (The Illusionist).
Of course, Rogen and Goldberg—both avid gamers—could just be pulling our legs. But Sony Pictures did release Pineapple Express and This Is the End, so there is some loose connection that suggests their statement is true. Plus, their statements, while maybe a tad exaggerated, feel genuine.
