Based off the popular video game, the new Uncharted film finds Ramin utilizing his talents to create the perfect soundscape for this onscreen adventure. Of the soundtrack, composer RAMIN DJAWADI says, “What a great pleasure it has been creating the score for Uncharted, an adventure movie that is not only fun but also funny. Adapting this well-loved video game for the big screen in collaboration with director Ruben Fleischer, set the stage for an expansive score that I hope will delight fans of adventure far and wide.”
