Venom-fame Ruben Fleischer may direct Uncharted

The film is set to star Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg

Published: 12th January 2020

Venom director Ruben Fleischer is expected to direct the long-delayed project, Uncharted, which is an adaptation of the popular video game of the same name.

There is no deal in place, but Fleischer is said to be the front-runner for helming the film, produced by Sony Pictures. Several sources said that the job is his if he wants it.

Uncharted is set to star Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg.

Previously, six directors, including David O. Russell, Neil Burger, and Shawn Levy, got attached to the project before exiting it. Travis Knight was the most recent director attached, but he left when production needed to be pushed back because of Holland's Spider-Man schedule.

Uncharted follows Nathan Drake, an Indiana Jones-like treasure hunter who travels around the world in search of priceless artifacts. The current draft of the screenplay is by Rafe Judkins, Art Marcum, and Matt Holloway.

Fleischer most recently directed Zombieland: Double Tap, the second film in the Zombieland franchise. He had directed the first film, too.
