Director David O. Russell dropped out of Uncharted. He's taking his goofy-sounding script and Mark Wahlberg with him.
David O. Russell, the acclaimed director of The Fighter and Three Kings whose visions of the Uncharted video game series riled up fans of the PlayStation 3 franchise, is no longer attached to an Uncharted movie, Variety reports.
The Uncharted movie sounds pretty stupid! It's about a globe-trotting family of antiques collectors that dispense treasure-hunting justice. That doesn't sound like Uncharted at all. What does Uncharted game designer Amy Henning think of the movie's concept?
Uncharted, the PS3 adventure game series, is coming to the silver-screen. While the movie may not sound like Uncharted, it's got big names attached. That doesn't mean it's going to actually happen.
There was a time when video game developers seemed to be seeking approval from a wider, more mainstream audience.
David O. Russell, director of Three Kings and The Fighter, has a kooky idea for making Uncharted into a movie: ditch the game story and make it different. Robert De Niro hasn't read the film's script, but he's hip.
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 bad news is the big-screen "adaptation" of Naughty Dogs' beloved Uncharted series is still underway. The good news? I get to post a picture of Scarlett Johansson, who could be in the running to play Nathan Drake's girl.
Adventure franchise Uncharted has a Hollywood film in the works, and it sounds just terrible. There might be a sliver of hope.
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.
Set aside your concerns about Mark Wahlberg portraying PlayStation 3 action hero Nathan Drake in the big screen adaptation of Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, because it doesn't sound like this movie is based on the video game at all.
"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?
Uncharted: Drake's Fortune is officially coming to the big screen under the direction of David O. Russell, who has reportedly signed a deal to write and direct an adaptation of the PlayStation 3 action adventure.
Hothead director David O. Russell will not be directing any Uncharted movie, the Los Angeles Times reports, and the unsuccessful negotiations to bring him to the project have pretty much shot any chance the movie has of releasing in 2011.
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!
Who will direct the big screen adaptation of Naughty Dog's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune? The LA Times reports that the film's producers and Sony, the studio backing the flick, have a short list of favorites that includes David O. Russell. Who's that?
