  • News No, Naughty Dog Has Nothing To Do With the Uncharted Movie

    Developer hasn't even read the script

    When it comes to movies based on video games, there's a surprisingly common misconception that developers have a say in the production of the big screen adaptations that are based on their work - but most of the time, this isn't the case.
