The rumors of the Uncharted movie’s demises have been greatly exaggerated, and the action-adventure game’s silver screen rendition will now be directed by Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief director Seth Gordon, according to a report today from GameSpot.
Before Gordon, David O. Russell, of Silver Linings Playbook and Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy fame, had been slated to direct the Uncharted project.
Before Russell, Limitless and The Illusionist director Neil Burger was to direct.
The directing role will be somewhat of a departure from the comedy work Gordon, who is also the executive producer of the ABC comedy The Goldbergs, is accustomed to be associated with.
However, Gordon is scheduled to start shooting on the reboot of the ‘80s thriller WarGames in June.
