Sony’s Uncharted movie may only be on track yet again after losing Travis Knight (Bumblebee), as Zombieland manager Ruben Fleischer has been eyed by the studio to take over the director’s seat on the long in-development video game adaptation, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fleischer exploded with his directorial debut on the acclaimed horror-comedy Zombieland and followed it up with modest hits 30 Minutes or Less and Gangster Squad before helming the box office smash Venom and last year’s successful long-awaited follow-up Zombieland: Double Faucet .

Uncharted will be a prequel to the game series, taking its basis in the sequence in Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception wherein the young thief Nathan Drake (Holland) first experiences his partner Victor Sullivan (Wahlberg) and in essence, sets up the events of the entire game franchise.
Despite previous drafts by the likes of Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty), Oscar nominee David O. Russell, Doctor Strange‘s Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer, Safe House‘s David Guggenheim, and Joe Carnahan, the new draft of the screenplay is written by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway.
Based on the action-adventure video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune from Naughty Dog and Sony Interactive, the story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he’s learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, by a cursed golden statue. The search becomes aggressive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is escalated when animals mutated descendants of Nazis and Spaniards — begin attacking those hoping to learn the true secrets of the treasure.
