‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ May Yet Hit the Big Screen

Uncharted
Naughty Dog

Sony Pictures haven’t given up just yet on the idea of turning ‘Uncharted’ into a film. Though they’ve been through at least two directors, they’ve now got a new writing team: Marianne and Cormac Wibberley, best known for their work on the ‘National Treasure’ movies.

At least they’ve found some people who have done something similar before.  For a little while this project seemed pretty cool when it was David O. Russell who was attached to direct with Mark Wahlberg rumored to star. It seems that the critical and fiscal success of their film ‘The Fighter’ made ‘Uncharted’ less appealing or less necessary (Russell moved on to ‘Silver Linings Playbook,’ which is due out this November).

The more recent development news comes from Variety, who also note that Neil Burger, who was briefly attached, has moved on and it appears he moved on to ‘Divergent.’ With a new set of writers, that suggests that Sony is committed to making this happen, though the track record with video game movies is still more miss than hit, with ‘Lara Croft: Romb Raider’ the most fiscally successful, and none all that artistically successful (perhaps the best would be the first ‘Silent Hill’ or the first ‘Resident Evil’ film). Still, it’s better than a board game adaptation.
