Sony Pictures is moving forward with their adaptation of the popular video game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, as the project now has new writers.  Variety reports that Marianne and Cormac Wibberley (National Treasure) will rewrite the script which was previously written by Neil Burger.  The Ilusionist and Limitless director signed on to write and direct Uncharted last summer, but Variety now notes that he’s no longer involved with the project.  He recently entered talks to direct the young adult adaptation Divergent, so that may have had something to do with his departure.

Uncharted has been in development for quite some time, and before Burger was attached it was David O. Russell that was planning on directing.  Sony now wants to wait until the Wibberleys finish their script before they start the search for another director.
