'Uncharted' Movie To Start Filming in Early 2015?

Today Zap2It spoke with director Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) on the status of his upcoming treasure hunting video game adaption Uncharted. Gordon is the last director attached to the project since 2009 when the project had David O. Russell attached with Mark Wahlberg attached. Since then directors like Neil Burger (Limitless) have been attached and dropped out. And the script has gone through 3 or 4 rewrites.

Now Gordon reveals that he hopes to cast the role of Nathan Drake (Made famous by voice actor Nolan North) sometime this year with filming beginning in early 2015!
"I think very early next year. That's the plan. That's like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie. I want it to be a great actor, That's number one, and then if it's someone who has an actual jaw, that's even better. The game is so well done that you need it to live up to that. There's no way we'd do the inverse of that where it's somebody famous who can't [act]."
He goes onto reveal that the movie won't be based on any one storyline that have been used in the video games thus far taking Nathan Drake on a while new adventure:
It's going to honor the mythology of the game, but I would say honor some of the most interesting stuff from the first one and build from there, There's some stuff that isn't in the game. I love the complexity and frankly the sophistication of the storytelling in the game, and we aspire to that--but don't want to tell the exact same story, of course--so something that doesn't break the rules of what it did but expands," he added. "Because I feel like the people who play the games and know them well don't want to just see the same story told. You want extra shades."
