David O. Russell NOT Directing "Uncharted" Movie

David O. Russell NOT Directing "Uncharted" MovieSubmit Comment
Mark Wahlberg has been planning to make a feature film based on the "Uncharted: Drake's Fortune" video game with "The Fighter" director David O Russell.

Russell has been talking about the movie for the last several months, showing how little he knows about the franchise. The plan has been to cast Wahlberg, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci, but now comes word that Russell has dropped out.

Deadline says that Russell is having trouble juggling the many projects he's working on and "Uncharted" had to be removed. Sony Pictures is now looking for a new writer to pen the script and is still very much interested in developing the film.

Just go play Uncharted 2


Not only is the game better than %70 of most films but you get to play the game

I'll second that comment, not because I've played the game, but because video game movies almost always suck and because Uncharted has rave reviews, so it's mathematically impossible for them to make the film better than the game.

So there is a God! Now they just need to give JJ Abrams a call to join Nathan Fillion and it'll be all set! a man can dream...

Best news I've heard all day. From what I was hearing he had the worst ideas for this adaptation. The story from the game is awesome and he was all about changing it.

So can we get Nathan Fillion on board for this?

^ N. Fillion wants to be in the movie, I hope the execs give him a chance. And Bruce Campbell is the only actor that could play a great Sully.

David O'Russell was never directing the Uncharted movie in the first place.

I don't know what the f*ck his film was an adaptation of, but it sure as hell was Uncharted

Fillion and Campbell would be the greatest match-up since Charlie Sheen and tigerblood.

This is just...such good news. Whedon helms and Fillion stars. Loads will be unleashed.
