The Uncharted game franchise has never been hotter, coming off an acclaimed awards run for Uncharted 2 where it swept nearly every category it was featured in, and Sony is now pushing the Uncharted movie forward. The studio is sitting down with a number of potential directors including David O. Russell of I Love Huckabees and Three Kings fame.

The producers are said to be very pleased with the writing treatment the script got from Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer and would like to move forward with it. There are thoughts that the film might even be pushed to release as early as 2011.

Considering how cinematic the Uncharted series is anyway, a movie version makes more sense than other franchises that have been optioned of late . . . like, say, Asteroids.
