Rumortoid: Uncharted heading to the silver screen?

According to a “well-placed source,” Atlas Entertainment (the production company responsible for the amazing Twelve Monkeys and Three Kings) has just purchased the film rights to PlayStation 3 game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.

Nothing has been confirmed or denied, but we here at Destructoid will, of course, keep you updated once we learn more.

My two cents: We all want videogames to be a respected medium, right? Uncharted is one of the most awesomely cinematic experiences I have ever had playing a videogame. To be honest, it may be better than most action movies as you can actually watch and play.

So why mess with it? Why not just leave it be and have people admire and respect it for the piece of art that it already is? Will a movie version really make it any better?

What do you all think? Do you agree with me, or would you love to see Uncharted on the big screen? If all this is true, who do you think would make a good Nathan Drake?
