Uncharted movie in development

Struck by a smooth criminal.

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that Columbia Pictures is working on a film adaptation of PS3 action adventure Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

Kyle Ward is to write the script. He's already adapted Kane & Lynch for Lionsgate, which Bruce Willis is slated to star in, and is working on a sequel to Fox's Hitman film.

Among the producers are former Marvel Entertainment bosses Avi and Ari Arad, whose production company announced it would adapt Capcom's Lost Planet at E3 last year. Game-to-film adaptations are a profitable niche right now, it seems.

Uncharted's Indiana Jones-style treasure-hunting derring-do and roguish lead Nathan Drake ought to work well on the big screen. In the meantime, developer Naughty Dog is prepping Uncharted 2 for release this year, and very impressive it looks to. More at the Uncharted 2 gamepage.
