Zombieland Director In Talks To Take Over Uncharted

January 11, 2020 | Posted by Joseph Lee

Sony has been unable to find a director that has been able to commit to their long-in-development adaptation of the video game series Uncharted. So far, names like David O.Russell, Shawn Levy and Travis Knight, among others, were all attached, but backed out for various reasons. Deadline reports that the latest name in talks with Sony Pictures is Ruben Fleischer, the director of both Zombieland films and Venom.

Fleischer is said to be at the top of the list, especially now that Knight was forced to back out due to a scheduling conflict. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg are still on board to star as Nathan Drake and Victor Sullivan, respectively. The current draft of the script was written by Rafe Judkins and the team of Art Marcum & Matt Holloway. Charles Roven and Alex Gartner will produce for Atlas Entertainment, along with Avi and Ari Arad for Arad Productions. Asad Oizilbash and Carter Swan will executive produce for Playstation Productions.
