One of the great Hollywood myths is that they are actually making a film based on the video game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Its gone through some bumps in preproduction, with acclaimed director David O. Russell bowing out alongside actors Mark Wahlberg, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci.
Now, replacement helmer Neil Burger (Limitless), has bailed as well, leaving the director's seat empty. Keeping the dream alive, Sony Pictures, Atlas entertainment, and Arad Production have hired a new set of writers in duo Cormac Wibberley and Marianne Wibberley, best know for their work on the National Treasure franchise and the Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle sequel.
The Studio is waiting for the pair to finish their script before seeking out a new director. The film will follow Nathan Drake and his search for the lost treasure of El Dorado.
