David O. Russell On Uncharted And More
Who might play Elena?
Let's make this clear - there's a question mark in the title, so you're best off filing this one under "casual conjecture", but as casual conjecture is the lifeblood of the internet, we thought we'd share.
You see, we were lucky enough to grab a quarter of an hour on the phone with The Fighter director David O. Russell, and, needless to say, we took the chance to talk about his next project, the video-game-to-film adaptation of the PS3 smash hit, Uncharted.
More specifically, we asked whether Amy Adams might be a good fit for the female journalist character, Elena. His response:
"Oh I would love that too, I love Amy. I also love Scarlett Johansson; there’s a lot of great actors I think might suit. Hopefully, we’ll see how it works out with everybody who are being scoped to do that role…"
Scarlett. Scarlett Johansson. As Elena... now there's an idea. Especially as Russell has been mentioning Wahlberg as a potential Nathan Drake and Robert De Niro as his best friend and mentor, Victor "Sully" Sullivan. It would be some sort of game-to-movie dream team, no?
Anyway, for more details, head to the interview itself, and when you're done there, come back here and let us know your thoughts. Excited about an Uncharted movie adaptation? Think it shouldn't happen at all? Is Wahlberg right for it? Let us know in the comment box below.
Oh, and by the way, The Fighter is out in the UK February 2. Just so you know.
