Troubled video game adaptation ‘Uncharted’ is no closer to becoming a reality as director Neil Burger (‘Limitless’) leaves the project.

In an effort to save the project Sony have brought Marianne and Cormac Wibberley on board to re-write the script, hoping that the pair bring the same sense of fun that made their Nicolas Cage-starring ‘National Treasure’ such a huge success in 2004.

Adored for its cinematic feel and loveable lead character, the ‘Uncharted’ series has sold over 17 million units worldwide since the first game in 2007.

The Playstation games tell the story of adventurer Nathan Drake (imagine a mix of Indiana Jones and John McClane) as he battles mercenaries and shady organisations as he travels the world looking for ancient (and somewhat mystical) treasures.

David O’Russell was previously attached to the adaptation and made it known that he wanted his former leading man Mark Wahlberg for the lead role.
