Uncharted Movie Gets Writers But Loses Another Director
At this point, we're starting to wonder if the project will ever get done.
After losing its first director, the "Uncharted" movie got Neil Burger ("Limitless") to come on board. But now, according to a new Variety report, Burger is gone and the film needs yet another replacement.
On the flip side, writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberley ("National Treasure," "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle") have been hired to pen the script for the film. Right now, it seems the project will be on hold until the script is completed, but we're not sure how long that will take. The film has Atlas producers Charles Roven and Alex Gartner, with Avi and Ari Arad producing via their Arad Prods. banner, so at least some key elements are still here.
In all honesty, I'm not sure I care much. The best new franchise of the current generation will be remembered with great fondness...having Hollywood screw up another game-to-movie effort will just be an unnecessary black eye.
