Sony’s ill-fated Uncharted movie project has hit another stumbling block, according to a report on Variety. The website claims that recently appointed director Neil Burger (Limitless) has quit the adaptation, leaving the film without anyone at the helm.

Burger follows in the footsteps of previous director David O. Russell (The Fighter), who disassociated himself with the project last year when his ideas didn’t gel with the franchise’s fanbase.

Despite the project’s uncertain fate, Sony has managed to sign-up prolific writers Marianne and Cormac Wibberly (National Treasure) to re-write the flick’s script.

Regardless, we're pretty sure that this movie's never going to get made.
