“Something that has been misplaced, can be found.”

Sam Drake (Rudy Pankow)

The action of Uncharted, the film adaptation of the PlayStation video games of the same name, begins within the walls of one of Harvard University’s most prestigious locations in Cambridge. The two characters, Nathan Drake (Tiernan Jones) and his brother Sam (Rudy Pankow) are not students at the school. Living in a nearby orphanage, they only dream of escape and are already obsessed with the search for Magellan’s lost treasure. No scene was really shot on location. Harvard has hosted filming in the past, but the Uncharted production, for budgetary and practical reasons, preferred to work from studio sets.

Uncharted Legacy of Thieves Collection (PlayStation 5)

Embark on two adventures in the Uncharted saga with this collection of remastered PS5 versions of UNCHARTED 4: A thief’s End and UNCHARTED: The Lost Legacy.

Marked by the Covid-19 pandemic, the shooting of Uncharted had a big interruption a few weeks after it started. It was only after the first wave of the epidemic that the team was able to reunite to film the rest of the feature film under drastic health security conditions. With a comfortable budget of 120 million dollars, the financing was partly provided by Sony, through PlayStation Productions. Uncharted was written in such a way as to pave the way for other episodes in case of success.


Uncharted cost $120 million.

Harvard University

Inaugurated in 1895 within the prestigious university of the same name in Cambridge, the Harvard Art Museums bring together three museums.

On one site, visitors can access the Fogg Museum, the Busch-Reisinger Museum and the Arthur M. Sackler Museum. The complex also includes four research centers with a total of 250,000 art objects dating back to antiquity. Amongst others, paintings by Nicolas Poussin, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Edgar Degas can be admired.
