The Jak & Daxter movie is currently in development.
Have you seen it before? No, I promise this is not a repost. Not even a week ago Tom Holland revealed in an interview that he would love to do a Jak and Daxter movie, and now it’s been confirmed that one is Actually in the works. Eh.
In an interview with Digital Trends, the director behind the upcoming Unexplored film, Ruben Fleischer, revealed that he is currently working with PlayStation on a screen adaptation for the classic platformer: “I’m currently working on Jak and Daxter, a version of it, for PlayStation, which, I think, would be really cool to bring to life,” he said.
While you’re here, be sure to watch this clip from Unexploredout in UK cinemas tomorrow.
So that’s one thing. Coming back to Tom Holland’s situation, it remains to be seen if it was pure coincidence that he also expressed interest in directing the film: “I would love to do a Jak and Daxter movie, and I would play Jak “, he said in an interview with GameSpot a few days ago. “But I would do it at A24, so it was really weird and dark. I would like a really weird, live-action version of Jak and Daxter.
Holland, of course, has the lead role of Nathan Drake in Unexplored, so it looks like he would be a genuinely strong candidate to play Jak, considering it’s set to be directed by the same director. That said, it seems unlikely that he would have said anything about an adaptation of Jak and Daxter if he actually knew anything about it (although he does have a history of leaking secrets, so it doesn’t would not be completely irrelevant). path).
Fleischer didn’t say when we can expect this movie to come out, just that it’s in the works. This will be yet another Naughty Dog game to receive a screen adaptation, joining the ranks of Unexplored and The last of us (the series should be broadcast on HBO, probably next year). Speaking of Unexploredwhich hits UK cinemas tomorrow (February 18 in the US), so fans can prepare for it (for better or worse).
