Uncharted Movie Was Made For Amy Hennig Since Neil Druckmann Is A Jerk-Off, Says Joe Carnahan
Neil Druckmann

Director and screenwriter Joe Carnahan spoke recently about his work on the Uncharted movie project before Sony pulled the plug, and what his intent was for writing the film. He mentioned that it was ultimately made for Amy Hennig since she was the original creator, but he had no love to share for the “Progressive” activist, Neil Druckmann, who later came in and was credited as the creative director on Uncharted 4.

Speaking with Discussing Film in an interview that was posted on March 10th, 2019, Carnahan, director of films such as The Grey and the upcoming remake of The Raid, spoke about his work on the Uncharted film, and how he wanted to respect Hennig’s work, mentioning at the 21 minute mark

“It was a lot of fun, and ultimately I wanted to make Amy [Hennig] happy. It was her creation, and I think what’s his face – I’m not a fan – [Neil Druckmann] stole credit for it. Yeah that jerk-off. You know, whatever.

 

“I think there was a bit of saboteuring going on there, too, with Naughty Dog. I think they got over the barrel a little bit, but Amy created that world, and she was the one I really wanted to please. The rest of them are… you know – whatever the hell that other guy’s name is – he’s a hitchhiker. He was probably fucking for the rewrite job. But who knows? These things… you never know how these things go down.”

His sentiments are shared by practically 100% of every real gamer out there.

Amy Hennig brought Nathan Drake and the Uncharted franchise to life. Neil Druckmann practically buried it under pretension.

Uncharted 4 was easily the worse game in the series; it was long, boring, dour, and Drake was completely out of character throughout the entire thing. That’s not to mention shoehorning in pointless feminist tropes to undermine Nate and Sam, and crafting an adventure around a story that didn’t really go anywhere. Added to this, Druckmann tried to bog the game down with a lot of unnecessarily garish moments of sentimentality that just ruined the game’s pace. Worse yet is that those wasteful moments were ultimately forgettable.

There was also only one iconic moment in Uncharted 4 and it was the Madagascar jeep chase. Everything else was trite, repetitive, and unimaginative. It was the completely opposite of Hennig’s Uncharted trilogy.

Again, nothing Carnahan says is something that real gamers disagree with. From the point of view of people who actually respect and enjoy the gaming industry, they all saw the writing on the wall as Druckmann looked to push out a talented director in order to usurp control over Naughty Dog. He proceeded to rewrite the story in Uncharted 4 where Nathan Drake was given a daughter instead of a son after being influenced by Anita Sarkeesian. Since then he has gone on to use the studio to proselytize his own sociopolitical agenda, and everyone who isn’t a fanboy is aware of it.

In fact, within the gaming community Druckmann’s activism is now referred to as “The Naughty Dog Agenda”.

Nevertheless, in the interview Carnahan goes on to talk about how he enjoyed working on the Uncharted movie even though the studios decided not to go through with his idea for the film. You can see the whole interview below.

It sounded like it really captured the spirit of Hennig’s vision for the series, and that ties back into his goal of having wanted to please her above all else.

Right now Sony has given the Uncharted flick over to Dan Trachtenberg, the director of 10 Cloverfield Lane and episodes of Black Mirror and The Boys.

Regardless of how the film turns out, at least Joe Carnahan had the balls to come out and say what many gamers have said for years. Most real gamers don’t like Neil Druckmann, and his sociopolitical propaganda has done nothing but make the industry worse, like that farce of a presentation during Sony’s E3 press conference.

Anyway, it’s a shame that Hennig was muscled out of Naughty Dog, because otherwise had she stayed I’m sure the company would have continued to make good games instead of intellectually degenerate agitprop for brain-dead fanboys and blue checkmarks on Twitter who spend more time twaddling about what offends them than actually buying and playing the video games that they demand kowtow to their politically infantile sensibilities.

Anyway… thank you, Joe Carnahan.
