Film Adaptation of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune Gets New Director/Screenwriter

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune

Just about a month ago we reported that Sony's film adaptation of the thriller/adventure game Uncharted: Drake's Fortune had lost its director ... and probably its star as well.

Now we're learning that a new director is on board: Neil Burger, who most recently directed the sci-fi thriller Limitless. Burger will also write the film adaptation, which is expected to deviate considerably from the international family of thieves version that was previously on the table, and may follow the game's storyline more — which features the character of Nathan Drake, a descendent of Sir Francis Drake, seeking the lost treasure of El Dorado. The game and its sequel have been very successful for Sony, which is looking forward to seeing this film be the start of an Indiana Jones-style film franchise.
