Neil Burger No Longer Helming UNCHARTED; Video Game Adaptation To Get A Rewrite
After David O. Russell (The Fighter) dropped out, Neil Burger (Limitless) looked set to helm the big screen adaptation of the popular Playstation 3 video game. He's out, and the duo behind National Treasure have been hired to rewrite the screenplay.
Variety reports that Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (National Treasure, Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle) have been hired by Sony Pictures to rewrite the big screen adaptation of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Neil Burger (Limitless) is no longer attached to helm the best-selling video game to live-action film project, and the studio will now reportedly look for a new director once this latest draft of the script has been completed. Uncharted has had a troubled production up until this point, especially as fans panicked when they discovered that David O. Russell's take would not have been at all faithful to the beloved series. Now that Burger is no longer attached, it might be a while until Nathan Drake makes his movie debut. As well as three games from Naughty Dog, characters from the franchise recently appeared in a DC Comics miniseries.
