Video game fans, rejoice! The most anticipated video game adaptation in recent memory is finally moving a bit closer to becoming a reality.

In a new interview with Zap2It, filmmaker Seth Gordon revealed to fans and supporters that he believes the adaptation of Uncharted will enter production in early 2015. “I think very early next year. That’s the plan,” he said. “That’s like tomorrow, essentially, because the prep is so complicated for the movie.”

Another big complication? Finding the perfect actor to portray Nathan Drake. Having the right person in his shoes is critical to the movie’s success, which is a fact Gordon knows quite well. He claims the search is ongoing at this time, and he’s not opposed to allowing someone who is relatively unknown tackle the role.

“I want it to be a great actor,” he said. “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].”

No plot details have been revealed for Uncharted, but Gordon has previously stated that the film will stay true to the mythology of the series and may even use elements from the original game. I would expect a lot of original elements as well, but that’s going to be the case with any major Hollywood adaptation.

There is no release date set for Uncharted at this time, but if the film does begin production in early 2015 I would bet a summer 2016 release would be a very likely possibility. We’ll bring you more on the film as soon as additional information becomes available.
