‘Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ Movie Gets ‘Horrible Bosses’ Director

Sony Pictures is in talks with “Horrible Bosses” director Seth Gordon to helm “Uncharted,” a live-action adaptation of the PlayStation videogame series “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.”

Gordon, who broke into the business with the videogame documentary “The King of Kong,” would be the latest high-profile director to come on board the project. “American Hustle” director David O. Russell and “Divergent” helmer Neil Burger have both been attached to “Uncharted” within the past three years.

“Uncharted” is an Arad/Atlas Entertainment Production and producers are Charles Roven, Avi Arad, Alex Gartner and Ari Arad. The game — centered on treasure hunter Nathan Drake, a descendant of Sir Francis Drake — was developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Computer Entertainment America.

David Guggenheim wrote the most recent script. Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer penned the first draft; Marianne and Cormac Wibberley also worked on the script.

Jonathan Kadin and Hannah Minghella are overseeing for the studio.

Gordon is repped by WME and Brillstein.
