Uncharted Movie Hits Stumbles, New Screenwriters Brought on Board
According to an article in Variety from yesterday, the efforts to bring the hit PlayStation 3 franchise Uncharted to movie theaters has hit some snags, with Limitless director Neil Burger reportedly having left the project.
In order to right the ship, Sony has hired Marianne and Cormac Wibberly, the screenwriters for the National Treasure series, to rewrite the script for the Uncharted movie. When you think about it, they’re a pretty solid choice, considering the fact that both properties involve heroes trotting the globe, beating up bad guys, and trying to get treasures and goodies and whatnot. Of course, the National Treasure movies are terrible (based on my own viewing of most if not all of the first one), so that diminishes the news a bit.
The project will exist without a director attached until the duo are finished with their script, says the article.
