The game-turned-movie will be directed by Seth Gordon, who is best known as the man behind The King of Kong and later Horrible Bosses.
The Uncharted adaptation was previously helmed by director David O. Russell prior to his leaving to direct the now Oscar nominated film American Hustle in 2011. Director Neil Burger was later attached to the project before also reportedly leaving in 2012.
Likewise, a new draft of the film's script has been developed following an earlier version by the writers of Disney's National Treasure franchise Marianne and Cormac Wibberley. This most recent script is the work of Safe House writer David Guggenheim.
Producers intend for the film to enter production later this year.
