Amy On Uncharted Movie: Wipe your fears away, these guys get it

Hollywood has the habit of totally obliterating our games don't they? From Hitman to Street Fighter, the final product is always underwhelming. So when news broke that Uncharted was going to Hollywood, fans of the franchise were nervous, and rightfully so. Columbia Pictures, a subsidiary of Sony Pictures is the company contracted with developing the film, and according to creative director of Naughty Dog Amy Hennig, there should be no worries, because "these guys really get it."

In a recent interview, Amy was asked about the movie and whether there was anything she could share, and boy did she share a lot of info.

"It's definitely in the works, I can tell people. We've got the best possible partners we could in Columbia Pictures. If anybody's got any fears of them not understanding the material or not loving it as much as we do, the can wipe those fears away, because these guys really get it," Amy said.

"I can say from the meetings I've had with them so far, their hearts and their heads are absolutely in the right place."

There's plenty more info in the interview, and you could get the full vibe here, like when she was asked will Uncharted 3 be a PS3 game, or will it be for Sony's next console, to which she replied:

"I don't think I'm able to talk about any of that right now. On a completely general level, the PS3 is an amazing piece of hardware that both us and other developers are only now tapping into its full potential," she said.

"There' a lot of life in that box. That's really the best answer I can give," she concluded.

Really interesting stuff, wouldn't you say? Uncharted 2 is available now around the world. Read our full review here. Do you think Uncharted 3 will be for the PS3 or PS4? We think they'll wait until the PS4 is released, but that's just our opinion.

Look out for the brand new website coming January 2010: Tailor-made just for you.


  1. Hollywood had better do a good job with this one. Seriously, they mess all they lay hands on.

  2. You have a selling error.

    Last paragraph where it says, "Do you think Uncharted 3 will be for the PS3 of PS4? We think they'll wait until the PS4 is released, but that's just our opinion."

  3. HA big fail for me.....i meant SPELLing should just leave now...

  4. lol, nah, you should stay.

    Thanks for spotting it. We're greatful.

  5. Nice read, I hope they don't make a mess out of this one.

  6. It's good they're doing fine with it. I will be waiting for this.

  7. I am very optimistic about the movie,since Avi Arad and Charles Roven are producing it...given they've produced Marvel and DC comics-based films well respectively.

  8. It takes roughly 2 years to make an Uncharted game. The PS3 is currently 3 years old and has a life expectancy of 10 years.

    So by now and the end of the PS3's life we COULD see as many as 3 more Uncharted games on the PS3. I'm sure Uncharted 3 will DEFINETLY be a PS3 game though because Sony are in no hurry to get the PS4 out anytime soon.

    Unless of course Naughty Dog go back to Jak & Daxter.......i think long - time fans of that franchise deserve at least ONE Jak epic on the PS3.

  9. I bet the film will drop around the time U3 does..cha-ching
