As Disney gets ready to shoot the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean,” Sony is looking for its own piece of the booty.
The studio is moving forward on “Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune,” the adaptation of the hugely popular video game that has a descendant of Sir Francis Drake colorfully and elaborately fighting his way to treasure on a remote desert isle. (That's a screen shot of the Playstation game above.) Several directors are said to sit in producers' sightlines, with the unusual name of David O. Russell on the list of notables. (Sources emphasize it's still at the meeting stage and not yet close to the deal-making one.)
