Neither the Uncharted or The Last of Us movies appear all that close filming, let alone being released, Uncharted game director Neil Druckmann has told IGN.

Sony has the Uncharted movie pencilled in for release June 30, 2017, but Druckmann says the script isn't ready yet.

"Every once in a while they'll come in and they'll present to us: here's the script, here's what we're thinking. We'll tell them what we think works, what we think doesn't work," Druckman said. "That's where we're at. Last I heard is they got a new screenwriter, but we haven't seen anything in a while."

Druckmann added that Naughty Dog is keen to ensure the movie makers retain the core relationships between Elena, Nate and Sully.

"Our approach is just to steer them back to those relationships," he added. "The most important part to get right is Nathan Drake, Nathan Drake's relationship with Elena and Nathan Drake's relationship with Sullivan. If you don't get that right, I don't think the film's going to work. If you get that core right, there's a chance it could work."

A while back it appeared the a movie based on The Last of Us was progressing well, but things have stalled says Druckmann.

"I know I said in an interview a while back we had a table read, got the script to a good place and it kind of entered development hell like these things tend to do," he said. "There hasn't been any work done on it in over a year and a half."

At least fans have the impressive looking Uncharted 4 to look forward to in May.
