Gamers everywhere are still holding their collective breath for a good video game adaptation on the big-screen. We know that "Assassin's Creed" is still in development, which has Michael Fassbender set to produce and star. Now it appears that there is some movement on yet another adaption of a huge franchise. Seth Gordon, who directed 'Horrible Bosses", is in negotiations to direct "Uncharted".
The main character of the game series follows Nate Drake, a treasure hunter who believes he knows where El Dorado, the legendary South American golden city, is located. The story progresses and involves a rival treasure hunter and mutated creatures, who attack those hoping to discover the secrets of the hidden treasure.
The original script was written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. It has since then been given a rewrite by "National Treasure" scribes Marianne and Cormac Wibberley, who seem like a good fit for a film like this. This project has been in development for a long time and has switched hands from various director, including David O. Russell and Neil Burger.
This will not be the first video-game project Gordon has dabbled with, if it pans out. He also directed the 2007 documentary "The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarter, which was his first feature and received critical acclaim.
