Uncharted finally has a director. Deadline reports that Seth Gordon (Horrible Bosses) is in negotiations to direct the long-gestating video game adaptation. David O. Russell, Neil Burger and others have been previously attached to the film but left for various reasons; the most recent script was written by Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (National Treasure).
The adaptation of the Naughty Dog game focuses on Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter and descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is ratcheted up several notches when creatures -- actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis -- begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.
