Joysticks Required - Sony's Leaked Emails Churn Rumors About 2 Game-Based Movies.



The Guardians of Peace, or the "GOP", allegedly hacked the emails of Sony Pictures Entertainment employees in November 2014 and released them to the public. It's rumored that this was a result of the anti-North Korea comedy, The Interview. The emails included personal and business related information of Sony Pictures employees. Shortly after the hack Sony executive, Amy Pascal conveniently resigned her position to start her own production studio.
What does this have to do with gaming? Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment are obviously two separate subsidiaries of Sony. But the two combine when Sony Pictures begins production of a movie based on a Sony Computer video game.
Take into consideration that some of these emails are close to a year old, so there is a good chance details since then have changed.

Based on the leaked emails, let's take a look at some details that have been discovered.

Rumors have been running rampant since 2010 about an Uncharted movie series. We already "officially" know a movie is in the works directed by Seth Gordon, written by Mark Boal with a Summer 2016 release date. Now detailed rumors can either be put to rest, or escalated.

-No one from the studio has announced it, but it's pretty obvious Mark Wahlberg will be Nathan Drake.

Among the leaked Sony documents includes a couple of versions of the Uncharted movie script.


Talks of a Bioshock movie have been pretty much silent since around 2012. Gore Verbinski was originally set as the director with a 2011 release date coinciding with the release of the third Bioshock game. Verbinski dropped out as the director due to budget issues but stayed on as producer with Juan Carlos Fesnadilla taking over as the new director.

-Sony is closing up rights to the plot and characters, which obviously shows a Bioshock adaptation is back in the works.


Again, these are all rumors and these emails are around a year old so the details can always change, but this should hold over all the curious fans of the game until the studio releases any "official" information.
