Filmmaker Ruben Fleischer was at the helm of the action-adventure film ‘Uncharted’ based on the video game series of the same name and admitted that while he would relish in the opportunity to work on an ‘Uncharted 2’, the notion of a sequel relies on the audience’s initial response.
He said: “I’d be thrilled at the opportunity to make a sequel and you can’t help (that after) working on this film for two years”
“I can’t help but imagine different adventures these guys might find themselves on and I’d be thrilled to figure out a way to bring those to life. But ultimately the audience will decide if that’s something they’re excited to see.”
‘Uncharted’ stars ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ actor Tom Holland, as fortune hunter Nathan Drake who is recruited by treasure hunter Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg, to help recover a 500-year-old lost fortune, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The movie also stars Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas in supporting roles.
The director- who is known for his 2009 comedy horror ‘Zombieland’ and its 2019 sequel, was then explained that he was “blown away” by the script of the movie and felt that it echoed treasure hunting movies of the past.
He told Collider: “When I read the script, I was blown away by the spirit of the movie. It totally captured the tone of classic treasure hunting movies like ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and’ National Treasure’, which is a beloved genre for myself so as soon as I read the script I thought it was amazing.
“I couldn’t speak to what preceded me but I know that as soon as I got involved I was so excited to go make it. It has the same spirit of adventure that the video games are known for.”
