"Uncharted" Director Neil Burger Says An All-New Script Is In The Works

"Uncharted" Director Neil Burger Says An All-New Script Is In The Works

The film adaptation of the wildly successful video game series Uncharted is going to start over from scratch. Fans were adamant in voicing their displeasure of now-ex-director David O. Russell's ideas and overall management of the film. With Neil Burger (Limitless) now firmly in place in the director's chair, the decision has come to re-write the script, and stay true to video game's origins.

Speaking to WeGotThisCovered, Burger spoke about the film's current status: "Until the screenplay is written, you never know who is going to be acting in it or not. There are a lot of good actors out there who even look like Nathan Drake and who could do it." So, does that mean a steadfast "no" to Mark Wahlberg and Nathan Fillion? We're not sure, but the Internets have started a campaign for the latter to star in the movie.

Not a lot is known about Uncharted under Burger's direction, but his modest showing in the Bradley Cooper-starring Limitless gives us hope that he'll create a similar cinematic experience that the PS3 exclusive title will surely offer to gamers this coming November.
