Uncharted: The Movie: The Curse of the Film Nobody Wants to DirectS

Once upon a time, David O'Russell (Three Kings) was down to direct the Uncharted movie. Then he was off. Then back on. Then off, with Neil Burger taking over.

Now Burger is gone. And writing pair Marianne and Cormac Wibberley are reworking the script. The film's producer, Avi Arad, will wait until they're done to appoint the project's third director.

Before you get too excited/puzzled by this, and go thinking there's something wrong with Uncharted or Arad, remember: this is how Hollywood works. It's how movies get made, or not made. Even the video game ones.
