Great news has turned up thanks to the Hollywood Reporter. It looks like new life has been breathed into the Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune film project.
Hollywood writer and director David O. Russell, (Three Kings) who previously passed up the project has now signed on to write and direct the Columbia Pictures production of Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune.
So, who should play who?
Game/Movie adaptations are slowly getting better and better, with Hollywood bigwigs finally realising that a decent budget and some actual talent can go along way. I take the more recent adaptation, Prince of Persia, as a good example especially when compared to atrocities like Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, Blood Rayne and Super Mario Brothers. While not everyone loved the movie, it was still a pretty good action/adventure movie that a lot of people, both gamers and otherwise, enjoyed.
Now, we don’t know about you, but now that the project is underway once more, our money is definitely still on Nathan Fillion for the role of Nathan Drake. If you don’t remember, we did a Casting Call feature a while back and told you who we think was right for the roles, you can check it out here.
