I’m not sure what’s going on with directors walking away from pre-existing properties being adapted for film, but the latest is that David O. Rusself, (the Fighter), has decided to walk away from directorial duties for the big screen adaptation of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
David O. Russell, who was set to write and produce the bigscreen adaptation of the videoame “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” has left the project over creative differences, Variety’s Jeff Sneider exclusively reports. More to come…
I wasn’t convinced that we needed another imitation Indiana Jones movie and I’m glad that they have an opportunity to re-think this whole thing. On paper it almost always sounds like a good idea but then you wind up with duds. I’m looking forward to news of a new director for this movie who will hopefully bring a new perspective to how a Uncharted movie should look.
