A descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nathan Drake believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray.
Chris Pratt is among those to pass on the role of Nathan Drake, while Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (of Superbad fame) famously passed on the chance to write the movie. “It’s just going to be Indiana Jones,” Goldberg said in 2013. “If we could figure out a way to make it not Indiana Jones, it’d be awesome.” Actors mentioned as possibilities have included Mark Wahlberg,Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Amy Adams, and Scarlett Johansson.
The film is now scheduled to hit theaters on June 30, 2017.
