HORRIBLE BOSSES Director Seth Gordon in Talks to Direct UNCHARTED

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.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
