his screenplay was, "too long and ambitious" for Sony's liking. David O. Russell also included a number of characters which aren't featured in the video game.

Sony is still moving forward with the project, currently seeking a new writer and director for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Mark Wahlberg will likely not star in the adventure, perhaps paving the way for fan-favorite Nathan Fillion to make a case to play Nathan Drake.
