It's been a while since we've heard anything on the movie adaption to Naughty Dog's critically acclaimed video game series, Uncharted. As a matter of fact, last time we had an update on the film, it was announced that Neil Burger (Limitless) was attached to direct, which was in last July. Well, just about a year later, it looks like he's now off the project. Of course, that doesn't mean Sony is giving up, because they've just hired new writers to rework the script.
Variety has the exclusive report, saying that Burger will no longer be directing the adaptation, saying that Sony Pictures wants to have a script done before they attached anyone to helm the movie. So who do they hire? Writing duo Marianne and Cormac Wibberley, the same people who wrote Disney's "National Treasure" films.
The two will be working on a story that "charts the journey of protag Nathan Drake as he seeks the fabled lost treasure of El Dorado." Ah, by the looks of things, we'll be getting an adaptation to the first game, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
Seeing how cinematic and story driven all three Uncharted games are, this has the potential to become a really great video game movie. Of course, the success really depends on who they get onboard to direct. Let's hope they hire someone good.
