Uncharted Movie Finally Gets a Director


They better not mess this one up! The Hollywood Reporter reports that a director has officially come on board for the Uncharted movie adaptation.

David O. Russell is said to have already signed on the dotted line not only to write but also to pen the screenplay for Nathan’s Hollywood adventure. Included in his portfolio are the movies Three Kings,Flirting With Disaster and I ♥ Huckabees. Not heard of any of them? Yeah, time to check him out on IMDB.

If it makes it any more comforting, though, he’s coming out with a new movie later this year, The Fighter, starring Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg.

    Just so you know:
    “David O. Russell is said to have already signed on the dotted line not only to write but also to pen the screenplay for Nathan’s Hollywood adventure”

    I’m guessing that should be “not only direct, but also pen the screenplay.”

    Anyway, I’m kind of ok with this. Hopefully Naughty Dog helped choose and they were happy with Russell coming onboard.
    My only worry now is cast.

    They definitely should get Emily Rose back to play Elena, but my thoughts are that Nolan North is too old to play Drake.

    So I’m fine with Nathan Fillion or Bradley Cooper.
    Nathan Fillion even tweeted this the other day:
    “If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE! http://j.mp/aEGe79

    So it seems he’d love to get it. Thoughts on cast?

    Three Kings and I Heart Huckabees are great films, he’s probably the best person out there that would do this. Still not sure a film is entirely necessary.
