After Filmmaker David O. Russell left the project due to “creative differences”, The Hollywood reporter revealed that Columbia Pictures is in final negotiations with Neil Burger (Director of Limitless, the Illusionist) to write and direct the long awaited adaptation of Drake’s Fortune. As for the leading roles of Wahlberg and Johansson as Nathan Drake and Elena respectively, its still unclear.
I’ve been sitting here for the past 20 minutes looking at a blank screen on my iPhone4, not sure how to type this next article. Should I make it a “puff” piece? What should I do? Should I stick to the facts? Should I just base it on personal experience like I have with my past articles and hope you all don’t come after me with torches and pitchforks? What should I do? Should i just bombard you with sales figures and other overwhelming stats? What should I do? Should I NOT rip off Lebron James and just get to the point? That’s exactly what I’m going to do.
Let’s face it, the man is like Indiana Jones on steroids. He’s a downright, no punch pulling – hero. He’s also quite brash when facing danger right in the eye. He’s the kind of guy that doesn’t run from bullets, but takes the shortest path to them. He’s got zingy one-liners and a chiseled jawline. He knows how to handle himself in a fight and knows his way around a weapon or two. If you’re planning on going into a gunfight, you’re going to want this cat on your team. He’s got past loves and current ones. He has enemies and then he’s got people that just want nothing more on this earth then to watch him die slowly – the purest of villains. He’s also a complete workup of fiction. Created by a small Santa Monica development studio – Naughty Dog, way back in early 2006.
Last month, Sony had signed David O. Russel as the director for the Uncharted movie. Now the more pressing question is, who’s playing Nathan Drake? For those still hoping it’ll be Nate’s voice actor, Nolan North, you’d be a bit disappointed. Sony has already cast an actor, and he’s not among the popular picks on the internet.
If you’ve been following the Hollywood scene, then yes,Mark Wahlberg has indeed confirmed that he will be playing the wisecracking treasure hunter in the movie based on the Uncharted games. Wahlberg and Russel have just worked together in “The Fighter”, which hits theaters in the US this December.
Wahlberg also confirmed rumors that Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro may have roles in the film.
While we wait to get our hands on Uncharted 3, it looks like we will be able to hold ourselves from fanboy exhaustion by reading “Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth” which will be written by Christopher Golden.
Nathan Drake will embark on an all-new, original, action-packed adventure-in search of a secret that will put him on the trail of the legendary labyrinth of Daedalus, and take him from the ruins of Crete to a secret crypt deep in the heart of China!
The book will not be a sequel or prequel but a stand alone story as to not take away from the game.
I for one will be jumping head first into this. It is scheduled to be released Fall 2011.
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.
