'Uncharted' film loses second director, 'National Treasure' scriptwriters begin re-write

Neil Burger leaves the project, the second director to do so.

The feature film adaptation of Uncharted no longer has a director attached, after Neil Burger who last year took over from David O. Russell reportedly left the project, Variety reports.

The film, Drake's Fortune, is now being re-written for Sony by Marianne and Cormac Wibberley who previously developed the script behind Disney's National Treasure franchise. No new director is set to take the helm until a new script is completed.

The title is being produced by Charles Roven and Alex Gartner for Atlas Entertainment, and Avi and Ari Arad through Arad Prods.
