Sony's adaptation of it's popular video game franchise from Naughty Dog has had a rough time getting to the big screen. It's cycled through a couple directors, been delayed and we haven't heard much about it in a long time. However, with a new video game announced (A Thief's End), the film's current director, Seth Gordon, is confident that they'll begin rolling cameras early next year. Come inside to check out all he had to say about the upcoming project!
Sony Pictures has been trying to bring Naughty Dog's Uncharted video game franchise to the big screen for a long time. It once had a release date and even a director, but after a bunch of fan outcry over the direction David O. Russell was planning on taking the story (which essentially amounted to it NOT being Uncharted at all), that director departed and the movie was put on the back burner. Now, however, it looks like Sony is finally getting serious about it, as they're now in negotiations with Director Seth Gordon to helm the film.
Reviewing a comedy is one of the hardest things to do in the film journalism world. Unlike action movies or drama flicks, a comedy is completely dependent on one thing, and one thing only; did you laugh? It could be terribly directed and have a piss poor plot but, if you laughed enough, none of that would really matter anyways. So going into this review of Horrible Bosses, know this; I cannot understand your sense of humor. To do that, I imagine it would take weeks of long, hard psychoanalysis. But I do know mine. And for what it's worth, Horrible Bosses tickled my funny bone just right.
Bridesmaids, The Hangover: Part II, Bad Teacher, 30 Minutes or Less, The Change-Up, and Horrible Bosses. That's all the comedy films being released this summer. Now that's what I call a summer!
