Back in February, we reported that David O. Russell may be directing Cocaine Cowboys before he takes on Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. The director also has projects such as The Silver Linings Playbook, Old St. Louis, and 2 Guns in the works. It isn't known which project David O. Russell will make next, though.
Sony Pictures is now seeking a new writer for the project, which is an adaptation of a popular video game series. The story centers on Nathan Drake, a treasure hunter who spans the globe seeking the mythical city of El Dorado.
