Since the Uncharted series made its debut with Sony's Playstation 3 in 2006, many have clamored for a film adaptation, and developer Naughty Dog has been attempting to get one for years, according to numerous reports. 

In speaking with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg during promotion of their recent film This is The End, the duo revealed to IGN that they have been approached multiple times by developer to write pen an Uncharted film script.

"They're constantly asking me and Evan to make the Uncharted movie," Rogen said. 

According to Goldberg, the two were have refused Naughty Dog's offers multiple times due to feeling that they couldn't do the film adaptation of the popular Sony exclusive justice. 

"It's just going to be Indiana Jones," says Goldberg who along with Rogen are fans of the series. "If we could figure out a way to make it not Indiana Jones, it'd be awesome."

A film adaptation of Uncharted has been in the motion since 2010 through David O. Russell signing on to write and direct along with Mark Wahlberg confirmed to star as series hero Drake. Russell would eventually leave the project for The Silver Linings Playbook while saying that the current script wasn't in line with the game franchise.

The Illusionist director Neil Burger sparked more hope when he took over and promised an adaptation more in line with the series' spirit a year later. Last year, National Treasure script duo Marianne and Cormac Wibberley would take over script writing duties without Burger directing. 

Uncharted's last game came in the form of Playstation Vita exclusive Uncharted: Golden Abyss. The last core game in the series, Uncharted: Drake's Deception was released on the Playstation 3 in late 2011. 

There have been rumors that Naughty Dog is working on a new Uncharted title set for the upcoming Playstation 4 thanks to few tweets from Graham McTavish, the voice actor behind series regular Charlie Cutter. McTavish is currently in Los Angeles doing voice over work for a project that hints to Uncharted 4.
