Mark Wahlberg will star as Nathan Drake, in a film penned and directed by David O. Russell. The adaptation will be based on Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune. While you’re waiting for that to hit theaters you can wet your whistle on the latest installment of the game, which has just been announced. Are you ready for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception?
Entertainment Weekly got the exclusive rundown from the creative director of Uncharted developer Naughty Dog, Amy Hennig.
The theme of deception plays out in multiple ways throughout the threequel, from Drake doing the deceiving to Drake being deceived to some mysterious deception about Drake’s very identity. The story focuses on the hero’s relationship with his mentor and father figure, fan fave Victor “Sully” Sullivan, and has him searching for a legendary lost city that will ultimately take him to the Arabian Peninsula and the vast wasteland of the Rub’ al Khali Desert, also known as the Empty Quarter. (Said legendary lost city has been known by various names, including “Iram of the Pillars” and the “Atlantis of the Sands.”)
