MUMBAI: The long-awaited live action film adaptation of the hugely popular and award winning video game series, Uncharted may finally see the light of day.
According to reports, Sony Pictures is in talks with Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon to helm Uncharted, a live-action adaptation of the PlayStation videogame series Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune with a script by David Guggenheim (Safe House, Bad Boys 3) and produced by Charles Roven (The Dark Knight trilogy), Avi Arad (Iron Man series) and Alex Gartner (Get Smart).
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, the first one in the series, follows the journey of protagonist Nathan Drake, supposed descendant of the explorer Sir Francis Drake, as he seeks the lost treasure of El Dorado, with the help of journalist Elena Fisher and mentor Victor Sullivan. Drake’s search for El Dorado becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the hunt, and then the plot takes a crazy turn when creatures begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure's true secrets.
If finalised, Seth Gordon will be the third director to be attached to the project along with David O. Russel (Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle) and Neil Burger (Divergent).
