Highlander Reboot Will Start a Trilogy, Gets Compared to John Wick

Highlander Reboot Will Start a Trilogy, Gets Compared to John Wick
Back in November, Summit Entertainment brought on John Wick and John Wick 2 director Chad Stahelski to direct their long-gestating Highlander remake, which has been in various forms of development since Summit picked up the rights to the franchise back in 2008. Directors such as Justin Lin (Star Trek Beyond), Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (Intruders) and Cerdric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter's War) had been attached to direct over the years, and at one point, Ryan Reynolds was even attached to star, before dropping the project in 2013, which is interesting since Chad Stahelski is also directing Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool 2, taking over for the departing Tim Miller. Now the gestating remake seems to be on the right track, with the director revealing that he's not only developing one movie, but he's starting to put a trilogy together.

Collider caught up with Joe Carnahan, who signed on to write the script in July. The filmmaker revealed at the time that he would love to direct Uncharted in a "perfect world," but he is only set to write the script, since he is currently set to both write and direct Bad Boys For Life.

'Uncharted' Lands 'Hurt Locker' Writer; Chris Pratt Passes
Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt has officially passed on the video game adaption Uncharted for Sony. But not all is lost, as the studio moves forward on the project by hiring Oscar-winning screenwriter Mark Boal, the driving force behind Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker.

Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon is taking on this big screen adventure based on the popular franchise Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. David Guggenheim (Stolen; Safe House; the upcoming Narco Sub and Bad Boys 3) wrote the most recent draft, with Mark Boal being set up to finish the job. He will do a three week polish.

&#8232While Uncharted might seem like an odd fit for the more reality based writer, Mark Boal is a self-proclaimed fan of the video game. And he will help continue to see the studio's vision of Uncharted as a swashbuckling Indiana Jones type adventure.

Zero Dark Thirty’s Mark Boal To Rewrite Video Game Adaptation Uncharted

Sony are clamouring for a new franchise following the disappointment of The Amazing Spider-Man‘s second instalment. After the recent baffling rumour that the studio are planning a spinoff featuring Peter Parker’s quaint Aunt May as a feisty spy, today they’ve stepped up their game. Literally. Their long-awaited video game adaptation, Uncharted, is pushing forward with Zero Dark Thirty scribe Mark Boal onboard to tackle the screenplay.

Boal joins a long list of writers who have previously had a stab at the script. Thomas Dean Donnelly, Joshua Oppenheimer, David Guggenheim and Marianne Wibberley all turned in drafts that failed to incite enthusiasm from the studio. Similarly, previously-attached director David O. Russell penned a draft which suffered a similar fate.

Where the continued problem exists in these versions is unknown, but the plague of problems the pic has already endured can’t be a promising sign. In addition to the wealth of writers,

Writer/Director David S. Goyer has joined James Cameron's upcoming sci-fi reboot Fantastic Voyage. He will be writing a new treatment for the film. The original adventure starred Stephen Boyd and Raquel Welch with Richard Fleischer directing.
