Sony’s push for an Uncharted movie was dealt a heavy (though fan-pleasing) blow when director David O. Russell left the production. Sony and David O. Russel had many creative clashes, so in his wake Sony has hired Neil Burger (director of The Illusionist and Limitless) to helm the project.

It is unknown if Mark Wahlberg will still be attached to the film, as it is arguably his relationship with Russell (having starred in three of the director’s previous films) that drew him to the role. Also unknown is if Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, both rumored to have roles, are still on board, although their involvement is unlikely
