Seth Gordon (“Horrible Bosses,” “The King of Kong”) is in negotiations to direct the live-action film adaptation of the “Uncharted” video game series for Sony Pictures Entertainment.
Based on the first game in Naughty Dog’s acclaimed and popular Playstation game series, the story charts the journey of Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of the explorer Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado with the help of journalist Elena Fisher and mentor Victor “Sully” Sullivan.
“Safe House” scribe David Guggenheim penned the most recent draft of the script, a good enough one that Sony immediately hired him to pen “Bad Boys 3”.
The likes of David O. Russell and Neil Burger were previously attached to direct the project at various points. Sony is adamant about moving forward though and hopes to begin filming later this year.
Gordon has other commitments before that though, such as a remake of “War Games” due to begin filming in June.
