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.

Although the Uncharted series on the PS3 has been a great success, it doesn’t seem like it’s getting as much love on the big screen. According to Los Angeles Times director David O. Russell (Spanking the Monkey, I Heart Huckabees, and Three Kings) seems to have dropped out of the project. It has now been reported by the Los Angeles Times that the studio is going to be starting. It seems that Columbia and the producers might try to attach a blockbuster cast to play the male and female roles for the movie before searching for a Director.
I for one would love to see this movie since I really enjoyed both games. I can only hope that they get a great director for the movie, someone that has that “Indiana Jones” or “The Mummy” touch. I do have to admit that I am extremely excited about the movie, but with 2012 being the end of the world. I’m not sure if we are ever going to see this come to fruition.
Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is definitely off to Hollywood! Sony’s hell-bent on bringing Nathan Drake’s action-packed treasure-hunting adventure to the big screen that they’ve already met with director David O. Russell to get things going.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Sony approached the director regarding his potential work for the movie, but that there are in fact several other directors that the company is considering for the job. The report describes it as “the meeting stage, and not close to the deal making one.”
The voice of Nathan Drake (Nolan North) has hinted that he would like to see Hugh Jackman play the part of Nathan Drake in the upcoming movie. Supposedly Hugh Jackman is the front-runner for the part. Could you see Wolverine .. I mean Hugh play Nathan? I could see it if he did his own stunts.
“Jackman is who I’d like to see. I think the producers would like to see Jackman too, because he has that tough guy exterior, but [...] there’s also a lot going on behind his eyes. A lot of emotion and sensitivity on that brusque exterior, and he has great comic timing. He’s a phenomenal actor. I just hope I get a part on the movie so I can work with Hugh.”
