The Uncharted movie has a script and apparently it's, err, "a beast"

After years of development hell, the Uncharted movie finally has a script. It was revealed last year that Stranger Things executive producer Shawn Levy is on directorial duties on Nate's silver screen debut  and now writer Joe Carnahan has announced on his Instagram that the script is complete. 

Carnahan's writing credits include the screenplay for chilly Liam Neeson movie The Grey and 2010's The A-Team, and he's confidently stated that the Uncharted script is "a beast" and that "if there's a more monstrously cool action script in Hollywood right now, I want to read it." Nothing like confidence to start the year. 

As yet there has been no casting decisions made for our favourite half-untucked adventurer so it'll be interesting to see that unfold later this year. Nate himself, Nolan North has always said he'd do it but when we spoke to him last year he said it was a "complex situation" when it comes to age. 

The Uncharted movie release date was pencilled in for this year and while that's definitely not going to happen, I'd imagine a 2018 release alongside Alicia Vikander's Tomb Raider movie. A Croft vs Drake box office battle sounds like an interesting prospect.
