David O. Russel directs films. He’s penning and directing the Uncharted film which sounds less and less like the game every time the project gets mentioned. This post is no exception; so sorry to ruin your Friday.
We already had an inkling that O. Russel might not have ever played the Uncharted games, but in a recent interview with IGN, he makes that abundantly clear. He previously suggested that his Uncharted film would ideally be about a family of treasure hunters that dish out justice or something. I don’t know, I switched off after â€œfamily of treasure huntersâ€.
When IGN asked O. Russel why he chose to make an Uncharted film and not a film on a different videogame, he said:
â€œBecause it’s centred around a family, and I like the combination of criminals and truth. These guys they’re tough but they’re working on this crazy case, and they can’t do it without truth. I think that’s cool.â€
What? What is he talking about? Are we even playing the same game here? I justâ€¦ I meanâ€¦ I don’t even.
