Mark Wahlberg didn't sound particularly jazzed to see Optimus Prime in the original trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction. Lucky for us, the folks at Fox's ADHD have figured out how the movie will probably go down (fictional spoilers ahead):
Director David O. Russell dropped out of Uncharted. He's taking his goofy-sounding script and Mark Wahlberg with him.
In the Uncharted movie, Mark Wahlberg will be hero Nathan Drake. Fans, however, had a different actor in mind and even made awkward pleas for their choice.
The Uncharted movie sure sounds rotten. David O. Russell directing Mark Wahlberg and a family of archaeologists? Stupid! Good thing the game's developer is saying the Hollywood actor's claims just aren't true. Well, sorta.
At a recent screening for The Fighter, an Uncharted fan approaches David O. Russell to tell the filmmaker just why actor Nathan Fillion is perfect for the flick. This gamer's played all the Uncharted games — all two of them! Awkwardness ensues.
"Hopefully we'll be making that movie this summer," actor Mark Wahlberg tells MTV, talking about the Uncharted movie he's planning with writer/director David O. Russell. Wahlberg would be Uncharted hero Nathan Drake. "DeNiro would be my father."
Goodfellas Joe Pesci and Robert DeNiro reuniting for the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune movie, with Mark Wahlberg potentially on board as well? A story about antiquities dealers in New York? That's just crazy talk. Isn't it?
Actor Mark Wahlberg teams up with Microsoft today to help deliver a funky bunch of Xbox 360 and Kinect gaming hardware to thousands of Boys & girls Clubs across the nation.
Meet David O. Russell. Director of war drama Three Kings and comedy Flirting With Disaster. He's a pro at making interesting films. He's also a pro at pissing off actors. Sounds like just the guy to helm the Uncharted movie!
He's Maxy Max, err, Max Payne star Mark Wahlberg. You know him. He's the star of the Max Payne movie and is gonna talk about the 1993 Hollywood version of Super Mario Bros.
Excited about the Max Payne movie? Don't be says Australian writer Latauro at movie site Ain't It Cool News. While the film's stars, such as actor Mark Wahlberg, have praised the script, the early buzz around the film is anything but praiseworthy. From the AICN review:
We already knew that Mark Wahlberg won't play Max Payne because of his "addictive personality". Well, what did he think of the Max Payne script when he first read it?
That's what the cover of the latest issue of British mag Total Film is asking. We'd respond with "hopefully not", what with Jason Bourne being nothing like Max Payne, but whatever. On the bright side, the mag's feature article on the movie has a bit of new info, including the fact that, apparently, Payne is Wahlberg's…
Oh, he's playing Max Payne in the upcoming movie, but he won't be playing Max Payne in either of the games. Not even for research. Why? Because the dude has an addictive personality, apparently:
