Uncharted Movie

Uncharted MovieSony is planning a live-action movie adaptation of the video game Uncharted Drake's Fortune. For those who don't know, Uncharted is an action-adventure video game about Nate Drake and his quest to find lost treasures in places far from civilization. David O. Russell, who's involved as producer, is the likely director of this upcoming Uncharted movie. And Mark Wahlberg is set to have the lead role as Nate Drake.

"The story follows a descendant of explorer Sir Francis Drake, a treasure hunter named Nate Drake who believes he has learned the whereabouts of El Dorado, the fabled South American golden city, from a cursed golden statue. The search becomes competitive when a rival hunter joins the fray, then is ratcheted up several notches when creatures — actually mutated descendants of Spaniards and Nazis — begin attacking those hoping to learn the treasure’s true secrets."

Here below a few words from David O. Russell about his take on the movie adaptation of Uncharted:

"This idea really turns me on that there's a family that's a force to be reckoned with in the world of international art and antiquities... a family that deals with heads of state and heads of museums and metes out justice.. We'll have the family dynamic, which we've done in a couple of movies now... And then you take that and put it on the bigger, more muscular stage of an international action picture, but also put all the character stuff in it. That's a really cool idea to me."
Director David O. Russell

Actor Mark Wahlberg revealed that David O. Russell is trying to get Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci to join the project:

"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."
Actor Mark Wahlberg

Well, let's hope that the Uncharted movie will be a better adaptation than Max Payne which was also starring Mark Wahlberg...

Anyway, more details about the movie Uncharted soon!
