It looks like the Uncharted movie is finally coming together as it’s script is currently being written and fine-tuned. David O. Russell will be writing/directing, and he’s now a seasoned pro with movies such as “Three Kings” and “The Fighter” under his belt.
Recently, It was rumored Nathan Fillion would play Nathan Drake, but it looks like Mark Wahlberg will be the star of the upcoming movie.
Wahlberg sat down with MTV and talked about his involvement in the movie.
“David is one of the best writer/directors I’ve ever worked with. The idea that he has is just insane. So hopefully we’ll be making that movie this summer.”
O. Russell is currently writing parts for Joe Pesci and Robert De Niro who will play Wahlberg’s uncle and father respectively. The two actors aren’t confirmed as part of the cast, but O. Russell is extremely interested in casting these fine actors. Wahlberg also expressed the amount of effort being put into making this a great, action-packed movie.
“I’m obviously in whatever David wants to do but the idea of it is so off the charts: De Niro being my father, Pesci being my uncle. It’s not going to be the watered-down version, that’s for sure.”
David O. Russell hopes to expand the Uncharted universe with a new story and new adventure. If all goes according to plan, Uncharted will be filming this summer.
