Quick Hits- Possible director for an Uncharted movie, Ground Zeroes reported to be short

The long gestating Ununchartedcharted movie from Sony Pictures Entertainment may be getting a director. Deadline reported that The King of Kong and Horrible Bosses helmer Seth Gordon is in negotiations to direct the flick based on the first game of the series, Drake’s Fortune. The script for the film was penned by David Guggenheim (Safe House), and is being produced by Charles Roven (Warcraft, Man of Steel), Avi Arad (Spider-Man), Alex Gartner (Get Smart), and Ari Arad (Iron Man). Previously the project has had the directors David O. Russell (American Hustle) and Neil Burger (Divergent) attached to it, with Russell’s planned idea for the film being considerably less than well received by fans. Should Gordon secure the job, the next step according to Deadline would be casting someone in the role of Nathan Drake. More on this as we get it.

For those waiting eagerly for the next chapter in Hideo Kojima’s Metal Gear Solid saga, once you get your hands on the game it may be over before you want it to be. According to an article in Game Informer (as reported by Kotaku) the main campaign for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the prequel for The Phantom Pain, can be completed in around two hours. It should be noted that this was the length of the main campaign only, and did not contain any side-quests or extra modes. Kojima has previously said that Ground Zeroes serves as a “tutorial” for the much larger Phantom Pain. Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes releases on March 18 in North America, selling at $20 (USD) for a digital copy and $30 (USD) for a retail copy for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will cost you $10 (USD) more if you want to play the game on the PS4 and Xbox One, both digitally and retail.
