We have another video game film adaptation coming our way! Columbia went out and picked it self up some of Drakes Fortune.  That's right folks, the studio is going to develop the action-adventure video game 'Uncharted: Drakes Fortune' into a a great big action-adventure film.

The story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is ratcheted up several notches when creatures actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.

Honestly, I don't see how you can go wrong with this. Even if the movie ends up being really cheesy, which I am sure it will, it should still be a fun movie to watch.

Kyle Ward has been brought on board to write the script. He recently wrote a script for the movie version of  'Kane & Lynch'. The movie is also being produced by Avi Arad who is the same guy that is a producer on all of the Marvel films.

I think the 'Uncharted' video game would make a great movie, so I am pretty excited for it. If you haven't played or heard of this game here is a little trailer for 'Uncharted: Drakes Fortune' and 'Uncharted 2' to show you what to expect.

So are you excited for this 'Uncharted' adaptation to go down?
