Sony Movies Planning: God of War, Resistance, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet and Killzone Flicks
It appears that Sony is looking to turn near as damn it all of its major video games franchises into movies: God of War, Resistence, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet and Killzone are all apparently to be lined up for the Hollywood treatment.

This comes from a report in Variety regarding a replacement for David O'Russell as the director of the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune movie.

The key paragraph from the Hollywood trade journal states that Uncharted would, "Title would be the first of the PlayStation-exclusive franchises - which include God of War, Resistence, inFamous, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet and Killzone - to be turned into a film at a time when Hollywood is eager to adapt videogames, toys and other pop culture properties."

In terms of the Uncharted directorial change, Sony has picked Limitless director Neil Burger to write and direct it.

According to Variety, "Burger landed the offer after the studio and producers Avi Arad, Ari Arad, Charles Roven and Alex Gartner sparked to his new take on the pic -- one that's more closely tied to the game.

He will rework the project after Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer penned the first draft."

As long as Nathan Fillion is Drake, I don't care who directs it!

Now I'm excited for this movie! David O' Russell was out of his mind with Mark Wahlburg staring as Nate, he would not suit it at all. I hope this Uncharted movie does not disappoint, if it is even half as great as the Illusionist then I am so sold :D
