Uncharted, the film version of the popular game series, may have found yet another director. Venom‘s Ruben Fleischer is the latest rumored person to take a wack at the troubled production. He follows David O. Russell, Neil Burger, Shawn Levy, and Travis Knight, the latter having been the most recent to exit due to scheduling conflicts. The film will star Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. Fleischer has also directed Zombieland, 30 Minutes or Less and Gangster Squad. His most recent film was Zombieland: Double Tap.
Uncharted is one of the most popular and highly rated video game series ever. It follows Nathan Drake, an explorer who travels the world looking for artifacts and uncovering mysteries. Yes, like Indiana Jones. He is joined in his travels by reporter Elena Fisher and well-traveled Victor Sullivan, or Sully as most would call him. The franchise has sold more than 41 million copies across eight different entires in the series. Most would say the main four games- Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End are the most essential.
Hopefully this one pans out, as a modern day Indiana Jones could be quite fun. More so than another Indiana Jones film would be I would think.
