“National Treasure” writing duo Marianne and Cormac Wibberley have been hired to rewrite “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” which will follow “Nathan Drake as he seeks the fabled lost treasure of El Dorado.” The studio will apparently wait until a new draft is turned in until they start talking to directors.
To be honest, we lost all interest in the project when Russell left for greener pastures, and the hire of the “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” screenwriters doesn’t help. At this point, does anyone honestly think it’s going to be anything else other than a mediocre 'Indiana Jones' knock-off? If you’re jonesing for some adventure check out the IMAX re-release of “Raiders of the Lost Ark” during its limited engagement run from September 7th to September 13th. Meanwhile, Burger is staying busy with a different franchise entirely, "Divergent." [Variety]
