Neil Burger to direct Uncharted: Drake's Fortune The big screen video game adaptation Uncharted: Drake's Fortune has finally found a replacement for departed director David O. Russell in Limitless' Neil Burger (not to be confused with the faux-Borscht Belt comedian Neil Hamburger).

It is unclear at this time if Mark Wahlberg, who was original set to star in David O. Russell's version of the project, will stay on board. It was rumored that the actor had dropped out alongside his The Fighter collaborator. But that may not be the case.

Sony apparently nabbed Neil Burger because they were impressed with his fresh take on the original script, which was penned by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer.

Sony has high hopes that Uncharted: Drake's Fortune will become a franchise tentpole for the company in the same vein as Indiana Jones.

Uncharted comes to theaters June 30th, 2017.
