Uncharted movie finally lands a new director

The director of The King Of Kong, Seth Gordon, is now in line to direct the Uncharted movie...

The movie based on the Uncharted videogame series has been in development for a while now, and several directors have been linked. Most notably, David O Russell and Limitless' Neil Burger were on board the project at one stage, before both opted to pass.

Well, it looks like the movie is back in business. Seth Gordon is now reportedly in negotiations to direct the film, which last we heard had Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (National Treasure) working on the screenplay.

Gordon, of course, came to prominence with a videogame movie, the quite brilliant documentary The King Of Kong. Since then, he's directed a trio of hit comedies, in the shape of Horrible Bosses, Identity Thief and Four Christmases. For our money, The King Of Kong by distance remains his best film.

It's still early stages on his involvement with Uncharted, but if he could hurry along and get Nathan Fillion cast in the film, that would be a marvellous place to start. More on the movie as we hear it.
