The writers of the National Treasure franchise have boarded Sony’s Uncharted movie as Limitless director Neil Burger exits the long-gestating game-to-film adaptation. Burger had succeeded Oscar nominee David O. Russell, whose story plans rankled fans as did his choice of Mark Wahlberg to play hero Nathan Drake.
Variety reports Marianne and Cormac Wibberley will rewrite Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune for Atlas Entertainment and Arad Prods. (the former’s Charles Roven produced the Nolan Batman films, while the latter is run by Spider-Man producer Avi Arad). "Project will wait to tap a new helmer until the Wibberleys complete their script," according to the trade.
In addition to scripting the National Treasure movies, the Wibberleys also scripted Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and created the TV series Common Law.
