The director of the upcoming Uncharted movie has revealed he’s also working on a Jak and Daxter adaptation.
“I’m actually working on Jak and Daxter, a version of that, for PlayStation, which I think would be really cool to bring to life,” he said.

“I would like to make a Jak and Daxter movie, and I would play Jak,” he said. “But I would make it at A24, so it was really weird and like dark. Yeah, I would do like a really weird, live-action version of Jak and Daxter.”
Three main Jak & Daxter games were released for PS2 in the early 2000s, followed by a racing spin-off and a couple of handheld adventures.
And last year, Naughty Dog co-president Even Wells made it clear that the studio wasn’t working on a new entry in the series.
It’s the first feature film from PlayStation Productions, a studio formed by Sony Interactive Entertainment to adapt its original game properties for film and television in partnership with Sony Pictures.
PlayStation Productions is also working on a The Last of Us HBO TV series, a live-action Ghost of Tsushima movie helmed by John Wick director Chad Stahelski, and a Twisted Metal TV series from Deadpool’s writers, among other projects.
