“Yes, that’s my next project. Normally, as a director, you’re attached to something—I know of at least one director in this room—it’s like, the dance we always do is, ‘Oh, I’m attached to this,’ and then you look at my IMDb page and it looks like I’m making 19 movies. Uncharted, I am not messing around. I am so committed to this thing and I’m in it on the script level with Joe Carnahan, who knows what he’s doing; that’s been a really frickin’ fun collaboration.”
Levy says they haven’t made any solid offers or decisions for who will play Nathan Drake:
“The truth is, the conversations that are happening right now are with the studio and the producers talking about who feels right to us and to me.”
Bad news is they didn’t took your suggestions.
“I’ve been pitched everyone. God bless you, Twitter, but I made a joke that, “You’re saving me the money of hiring a casting director, Twitter,” because from Nikolaj [Coster-Waldau] to Oscar Isaac, [Nathan] Fillion, everyone that you would, [Chris] Pratt, Chris Evans, Chris Pine, I mean the suggestions are… It’s every actor who is ruggedly handsome, which is to say every movie star, and who looks anything like the square-jawed, chiseled-featured Drake. I’m not actually going to base my casting on Twitter suggestions. Maybe I’ve even said the name in this room; who knows. Eventually, if people keep suggesting ideas and actors, one of them will prove to be true. We’re very hard at work on the script right now.”
